Colorado Energy Office to present C-PACE training at energy efficiency workshop

The Colorado Energy Office will present a free C-PACE training as the local introduction to the Colorado Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy program from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday Feb. 2. C-PACE was approved by Routt County in December and offers a 100 percent financing option for energy-efficiency and water conservation improvements for new or existing commercial buildings.

C-PACE is available for commercial buildings including office, retail, hotel, multi-family (five units or more), industrial, healthcare, school, municipal and nonprofit. Energy efficient eligible projects include: automated building controls, boilers, chillers, furnaces, building envelopes, insulation, windows, combined heat/power systems, high efficiency lighting, hot water heating, HVAC upgrades and controls, solar PV, pumps, motors, drives, roof replacement and water conservation.

This long-term financing option is paid back up to 20 years via the building's property tax assessment. The resulting energy savings can outweigh the annual assessment. This workshop, along with an application, is required for contractors who wish to become registered with and develop C-PACE financed projects.

Networking and breakfast snacks will start at 8:30 a.m. before the class at the Steamboat Springs Board of Realtors conference room, 625 S. Lincoln Ave., No. 202. Visit for more information. For workshop registration email

Award-winning documentary 'The Age of Consequences' analyzes climate change

Bud Werner Memorial Library and Yampa Valley Sustainability Council present a free screening of "The Age of Consequences," an award-winning documentary that investigates the impacts of climate change on increased resource scarcity, migration and conflict through the lens of U.S. national security and global stability, at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 2 in Library Hall.

Through unflinching case-study analysis, distinguished admirals, generals and military veterans take viewers beyond the headlines of the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of radicalized groups such as ISIS, and the European refugee crisis — and lay bare how climate change stressors interact with societal tensions, sparking conflict. Whether a long-term vulnerability or sudden shock, the film unpacks how water and food shortages, drought, extreme weather and sea-level rise function as "accelerants of instability" and "catalysts for conflict" in volatile regions of the world.

These Pentagon insiders make the compelling case that, if nations go on with business as usual, the consequences of climate change — waves of refugees, failed states, terrorism — will continue to grow in scale and frequency, with grave implications for peace and security in the 21st century.
