Wind, solar, biofuels and "smart grid" companies are the major players in Colorado's cleantech industry, which is looking for ways to bring new business to the state. A just-released industry action plan has ideas for attracting new research and development operations, and supplying the wind and solar manufactuers who are already here. The plan calls for easier permitting, new attention to green-energy distribution, and training the engineers and business executives who will drive the industry's future. Colorado Public Radio's Mike Lamp talks with Chris Shapard, Executive Director of the Colorado Cleantech Industry Association.
