Energy Week at Duke

Energy Week

Mark your calendars for the second annual Energy Week at Duke. The 2017 event will offer plenty of professional growth opportunities:

LEARN AND NETWORK. Join us for the 9th annual Duke University Energy Conference (Nov. 8). This event will showcase industry insights from prominent energy sector experts—last year’s speakers included Ellen Williams (Director, ARPA-E), Mauricio Gutierrez (CEO, NRG) and David Brewster (President, EnerNOC). You’ll also have opportunities to network with panelists and attendees (who numbered nearly 500 last year).

COMPETE (OR JUST WATCH). Student teams from top graduate schools across the country will square off in the 5th annual Energy in Emerging Markets Case Competition (Nov. 7). (Last year, when the case focused on the energy crisis in Cuba, teams walked away with $15K in prizes.) In addition, conference-goers can check out promising research from students far and wide at the Energy Research Poster Presentation (Nov. 8).

FIND OUT WHAT’S NEXT. The Research Triangle has one of the fastest-growing cleantech sectors in the nation—thanks in part to an active startup culture. Check out Triangle entrepreneurs’ pitches about their innovations at Energy Startup Demo Day (Nov. 9).

MUCH MORE, including career development events for Duke students and tours of campus energy facilities.

Energy Week at Duke is organized by seven student energy clubs across campus, with support from the Duke University Energy Initiative and the Center for Energy, Development and the Global Environment (EDGE) at the Fuqua School of Business, recently recognized among the top 10 business schools in energy.
