Legislative Preview: A Conversation with Colorado Sen. Chris Hansen

“I mean, this is why I decided to leave my private-sector job and run for office, to work on climate change.”

Sen. Chris Hansen

The Colorado Legislature convened for three days in January to swear in new members and meet constitutional obligations, but due to COVID-19, the main work of the session will not begin until mid-February. 

Responding to climate change is a priority. Gov. Jared Polis has released a road map with a goal of achieving 100% renewable energy by 2040. We talked to Democratic Sen. Chris Hansen, Senate District 31, about the work we can expect from this year’s session.

Hansen is known as a legislator that understands and can shape Colorado energy policy, backing it with his professional accomplishments and impressive educational chops: He has a BSc in nuclear engineering from Kansas State University; a graduate diploma of civil engineering from the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa; a master of science degree in technology policy from MIT; and a doctorate in economic geography from Oxford University. 

He was chosen as one of 15 leaders nationwide to join the NewDEAL (Developing Exceptional American Leaders), a national network of rising state and local elected officials. Hansen’s expertise also comes from working in the environmental/energy sector, including with renewable energy and electricity companies for more than 20 years. Hansen was a senior director at IHS Markit, leading a worldwide portfolio of energy products, events and partnership.
