Bill Ritter, director of Colorado State University’s Center for the New Energy Economy – part of the CSU Energy Institute – and the 41st governor of Colorado, will deliver the President’s Community Lecture Nov. 7.

Ritter will give a talk titled “Powering Forward: America’s Energy Revolution,” at 6:30 p.m. in the Lory Student Center Theatre. The event is free and open to the public. A question-and-answer forum will follow at 7:45 p.m.

Launched in 2014, the President’s Community Lecture Series is hosted by CSU President Tony Frank. Its purpose is to connect some of CSU’s most innovative faculty members with the Fort Collins and surrounding communities.

Ritter served as governor of Colorado from 2007-2011. At the event, he will discuss the future of fossil and renewable fuels, and the ways our planet must think about energy, including U.S. energy-climate policies and politics.

He is the author of a new book, “Powering Forward: What Everyone Should Know About America’s Energy Revolution.” Copies will be available for sale at the event.
