The 11th annual Duke University Energy Conference brought 300 students, faculty, and industry executives together in November at Duke’s Fuqua School of Business to discuss the changing energy industry landscape.
“Despite lots of debate and decades of inaction, we increasingly recognize that energy transition is essential,” said EDGE executive director Dan Vermeer in welcome remarks. “The global public is waking up to the reality of the climate crisis, and the urgent need to transform our energy systems. A growing sense of crisis has been triggered by both the latest science and the real-world impacts of climate change.”
Organized by the Duke MBA Energy Club in partnership with other entities on campus, the 2019 conference featured keynote speakers Barbara Burger, President of Chevron Technology Ventures, and Mark Florian, Managing Director and Head of Global Energy & Power Infrastructure at Blackrock. Panelists and other presenters came from Tesla, ABB, Deloitte, Duke Energy, Con Edison, ScottMadden, and other organizations..
