In the Twenty-First Century, we have seen a dramatic change in the energy industry.  The discovery of shale gas has transformed the United States from an energy importer to an energy exporter.  Meanwhile, political instability in the Middle East has added to the volatility of global energy supplies.  These changes are impacting us while the energy industry itself is undergoing a tremendous technological shift.  The technology utilized within the industry is ever more complex and the talents to work in this field are increasingly difficult to find.  The 11th Annual Energy Symposium at Harvard Business School will navigate these transitions to find the path to the future of the energy industry. The symposium will end with a showcase and networking hour with of some of the hottest companies in the energy and environment space.  Check back closer to the event for details.

Join us on Saturday, October 18th to unfold the new balance in the energy industry! Registration begins on Monday, August 15th.
