From the organizers:
2019 Stanford Energy Week
Today, our generation faces some of the most daunting challenges in history; combating global warming, addressing rising energy demand, and ensuring access to energy for all. Dealing with these challenges requires creative and innovative solutions across a multitude of disciplines, and it must involve people from all over the world who are committed to a sustainable future.
As the largest energy organization at Stanford University, we at the Stanford Energy Club are uniquely poised to galvanize enthusiasm, inspire creativity and collaboration, and lay the foundation for a stronger, and more innovative energy community - a community that extends far beyond the palm trees lining our campus. At Energy Week, we hope to build the relationships that serve as the foundation of such a community - and through it innovate a more sustainable future.
Join the Stanford Energy Club for the main session of Stanford Energy Week 2019. The session will open with breakfast at 9:00 am, followed by a number of panels and workshops covering topics including energy policy and innovation, energy access, and applying human-centered design to sustainability. Closing out the day will be a Fireside Chat featuring Chris Nelder, creator and host of the Energy Transition Show podcast.
