Addressing climate change and environmental justice have become top priorities for the U.S. federal government, and others world-wide. Most recently, energy has returned as a top national security concern. To explore, understand and appreciate the call to action, we are launching two important gatherings in November of 2022.

Stanford Global Energy Forum participants will examine and synthesize the latest developments into concrete actions we can take in our work. Transitioning to low-carbon energy systems while extending the benefits of these systems to all people is a huge, dual challenge. It also offers the biggest opportunity of the 21st century.  How businesses, government, research institutes and civic organizations seize this opportunity could benefit not just our environment, but the global economy and national security.

Stanford Energy Innovation Day is a one-of-a-kind convening of Stanford's energy technology ecosystem that brings together a stakeholder community, showcases start-up technologies, and features critical dialogues on deploying energy solutions at speed and scale.

The opportunity for individuals from these entities to engage in person and find potential collaborations this November should be exciting and fruitful. 

We hope that you will join us in person for Stanford Energy Innovation Day and Stanford Global Energy Forum so that our current and future leaders can together explore, understand and help shape the future of energy. Read all.
