Energy Future Collaboration
 

On February 28, 2018, the City and County of Denver, Colorado (“Denver”) and Public Service Company of Colorado, a Colorado corporation and an Xcel Energy company (“Xcel Energy”), entered into an Energy Future Collaboration - Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”). ​

The MOU provides a strategy and framework for cooperation and achievement of a shared vision through broad collaboration, focusing on innovation, clean energy, economic development opportunities, customer choice programs and technology.​

Denver will seek to implement EFC Partnership projects values at strategic locations and across Denver agencies and offices. These include, but are not limited to, Denver’s municipal facilities, DEN, the National Western Center, and the Denver Arapahoe Disposal Site. Representatives across Denver’s municipal agencies and offices will participate in the EFC Partnership as necessary to achieve its goals.​

Denver and Xcel Energy have outlined short-term and longer-term goals, organized by six technical working groups in their 2020 Work Plan. The purpose and 2020 implementation project of each working group is listed below with links to additional resources about Denver’s efforts on the activity.
