Energy Thought Summit 2017

  • 800 Congress Avenue Austin, TX, 78701 United States


How do we create the modern energy infrastructure needed for next-generation communities? This isn’t just a utility problem; it isn’t just an engineering problem. Answering this question means new roles, new relationships, and new designs in energy.

ETS17 is calling all creative minds to convene and design real solutions for the energy transformation taking place today. This inclusive event welcomes everyone to the table to create change in energy, and consider the roles that emerging technologies play in shaping a new future. More details to come.
