 The awards will be presented at the Environmental Industry Summit in Coronado, California, March 14, 2012. EBI will recognize this and other projects that have achieved exceptional business performance in the environmental industry.

The park in Weld County, the vision of Craig Harrison, is renewable energy datacenter project that will combine clean fossil fuels, alternative energy, Smart Grid, energy storage, renewable energy research, DC power and cloud computing data centers,

“We’re very proud that the Niobrara Energy Park won in both categories for renewable energy development,” said Harrison.

“We believe Niobrara Energy Park is the largest proposed MicroGrid on the planet. We’re honored by this recognition of our project as a revolutionary center that has the potential to change how our country generates, stores, distributes and consumes energy.”

Niobrara Energy Park recently teamed up with IDC Architects, a CH2M Hill company, to showcase new concepts of integrated conventional and renewable energy facilities in the project. The 640-acre Niobrara Energy Park is located in northeastern Colorado between Fort Collins and Cheyenne, Wyoming, and is on the market as one project for a single buyer or joint venture.

Niobrara Energy Park is a proposed 640-acre micro grid project located near the Colorado-Wyoming border that will integrate natural gas and renewable energy generation facilities, including solar and wind energy, with data centers and energy research. Located in Colorado’s epicenter of numerous green energy and clean-energy initiatives, Niobrara Energy Park has received widespread support from government officials, energy-industry leaders, researchers and many others.
