Baldwin has served with the White House Office of Science and Technology, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment, Princeton University and the U.S. Senate. He is co-author of nine books and monographs and has published more than 30 papers and technical reports on energy technology, policy and physics. In 2007, Baldwin was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

At Colorado State, Ritter heads the new Center for the New Energy Economy and is Senior Scholar within CSU’s School of Global Environmental Sustainability, which focuses on building the new energy economy.

The event will feature poster presentations from Clean Energy Supercluster faculty members as well as presentations from several university clean energy startup companies.

The mission of the CSU Clean Energy Supercluster is to deliver solutions in clean energy through more effective partnering with the clean energy industry, governments, investors and the public to rapidly develop product opportunities emerging from CSU’s world-class, clean-energy research. More than 100 CSU faculty members in all eight colleges are directly involved in this institution-wide effort.

Cenergy is the business component of the Clean Energy Supercluster. Professor Bryan Willson in mechanical engineering serves as director of the Clean Energy Supercluster and chief scientific officer of Cenergy, overseeing clean-energy research activities of the university.

As chief operating officer for Cenergy, Tim Reeser focuses on forging business alliances and developing new commercial opportunities for the results of that research.
