Denver (AP) Business and political leaders are banking on Colorado's new energy leadership to give it a big edge in the competition for billions of federal stimulus dollars promoting renewable energy and energy efficiency.

President Barack Obama's $787 billion package includes about $50 billion for renewable energy and efficiency programs.
