MOSCA — University of Colorado Denver Business School global energy management (GEM) students visited the Valley’s solar farms last week to see for themselves how sun power works in real time.

The field trip to Mosca to tour the Alamosa Solar Generating Project and the San Luis Solar Ranch offered up insight to the growing technology to the students, some coming from as far away as Saudi Arabia, and most with backgrounds in oil and gas.

“It is really important to the future of this state,” said GEM student and Denver-based solar project manager Brad Barkey during Thursday’s tour. “Our (Colorado’s) legislation has been positive, and the Gov. has been positive, too. That is helping to get the industry going.”

The GEM program is a Master of Science (MS) degree program designed to develop future leaders in the energy industry. Students enroll in GEM because it offers graduate business courses like accounting, finance, strategic management, marketing and economics focused entirely on the energy industry.
