The Strategic Transmission and Renewables (STAR) project provides data and insights to expand the strategic discussion regarding what mix of demand-side and supply-side resources (including high-voltage transmission) should be considered in Colorado, particularly if the state strives to meet the Governor's Climate Acation Plan's objective of reducing the electricity sector's carbon dioxide emissions by 80% by 2050.

The Strategic Transmission and Renewables: A Vision of Colorado's Electric Power Sector to the Year 2050 report picks up where the Renewable Energy Development Infrastructure report left off. It further delves into the changing energy resource landscape, updating projections to reflect recent legislative changes that dramatically reduce generation from coal resources and increase the components of the state's energy mix from renewable and natural gas resources to reflect current law.
