Denver Law Professor K.K. DuVivier teaches, speaks and writes about the law of renewable energy. Now the Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) has recognized that Professor DuVivier lives according to the same code. On May 15, 2012, CRES handed out its 2012 Renewable Energy in Buildings Awards. Recipients of the “Residential, New Construction Award” were Professor DuVivier and her husband, Lance Wright. Their Denver home, which employs solar thermal panels and many passive features, is near net-zero.
Former Colorado Governor Bill Ritter presented the CRES awards at a reception taking place as part of the World Renewable Energy Forum, held at the Denver Convention Center May 13 through 17. CRES Executive Director Lorrie McAllister said, “CRES is proud to celebrate this year’s award winners who are paving the way to a promising economic future, creating new jobs, protecting our environment and increasing our energy security.” -rw
