Colorado State University's Center for the New Energy Economy (CNEE) has announced the rollout of the Advanced Energy Legislation (AEL) Tracker, a new online database of energy-related state legislation pending in all 50 states.

"If we look at where the country is going on advanced energy policy, overwhelmingly that transition is being led by states," says Bill Ritter Jr., director of CNEE and former governor of Colorado. "To get the pulse of where the country is going, we need to understand what the states are doing."

The database has been developed in collaboration with Advanced Energy Economy (AEE), a national business organization representing the advanced energy industry. More information about the tracker is available at aeltracker.org.
