Welcome to the Energy Club!
What we do:
Our main event are weekly Energy Chats where an invited speaker will present on an area of their work in the energy landscape. We try to bring events that will present an energy topic that touches the technology, economics, and policy. For example, we’ve hosted professors and graduate students present on their research, industry execs from oil & gas, solar, and wind, policy experts and elected officials, NGOs and other organizations, and more. Some are more technical than others where you might learn about energy production and the whole electric grid. And others may be more policy related or the economics of energy (e.g. why solar prices are low, etc.)
In the spring we host the Southeastern Energy Conference where we have several invited speakers and panel sessions and a poster session and more. Last year we hosted a case competition related to energy poverty in the southeast.
And lastly, we can do projects and competitions. Last year we had a team compete in the Department of Energy Solar District Cup. There are two other DoE competitions (solar decathlon and wind energy competition) that we want the club to sponsor teams.
Why you should join:
The Energy Club will teach you the complex interactions in the energy landscape: technology, economics, and policy. You will be better prepared to energy the industry and have a more holistic perspective of this crucial infrastructure.
We would love it if you joined the club and participated in any way you’re interested in. We are always looking to grow and if you have an idea for an event, topic, project, etc. that you want to do as part of the club, we have the ability to sponsor your ideas.
