Over the years, Craig Cox has had the privilege of working with many talented and dedicated colleagues, with whom he has achieved a number of accomplishments in the public policy advocacy and stakeholder outreach
Craig established the Interwest Energy Alliance trade association in 2002. Working with project developers, NGOs, government officials and many other parties, Interwest advanced policies that led to a 1,487% increase in wind and utility-scale market development during Craig’s ten years as Interwest’s executive director.
Working for the Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Energy and Power in the mid-1990s, Craig advanced bipartisan support for renewable energy in Congress. Since then, he has worked for clients to advance their federal policy goals in Congress and the executive branch, and has testified before the House Interior Committee on public lands and transmission issues.
Craig helped spearhead a consensus effort between the energy industry and conservation groups to create the Colorado Renewables Conservation Collaborative (CRCC). This “win-win” effort negotiated the adoption of 12 best management practices (BMPs) that ensure long-term certainty for wind project developers as well as providing protection for key wildlife species and ecosystems.
