Classroom Energy

Colorado Oil and Natural Gas

The Rocky Mountain Energy Forum will be introducing a series of educational modules to teach students about the importance of energy, the rich energy resources that Colorado possesses, and how - and why - we can develop these resources in an environmentally responsible manner.

The Importance of Energy

Energy plays a critical role in our daily lives, transporting us to our daily activities, heating and cooling our homes, cooking our food and even serving as the foundation for hundreds of products we use.  Energy production in Colorado can serve tremendous economic value in terms of revenue for our communities and jobs for our families if we are good stewards of our land and natural resources.
