What We Do

The Energy Club seeks to inspire and prepare the next generation of individuals knowledgeable in the complex interaction energy-related world. We strive to bring together the technology, policy and business of the energy landscape to better understand the issues and contribute to the dialogue. We offer a great opportunity to get involved and network with many influential energy leaders on campus and across the country. The interdisciplinary nature of the topic ensures that there is something for everyone in the club. We cater to all majors and both graduate and undergraduate students.

Why We Love Energy Club

The most important part of the ECGT is the opportunities it creates for its members. Like many of the clubs on campus, Energy Club offers great opportunities to learn beyond the classroom through our Energy Chats and network with professionals at the Energy Expo. However, what sets the Energy Club apart is the way we encourage our members to propose new pathways for the club. In the past few years alone, our members have launched a career fair geared towards start-up companies,  designed a fundraising campaign that brought in $16,000 from industry sponsors, and developed a partnership with the Center for Distributed Energy to help entrepreneurial students bring their ideas to life. There are plenty of great students at Georgia Tech, and it’s the ability to tell those kinds of stories that will set you apart from the crowd.

As a PhD student, it’s very easy to get lost in your specific research and forget the big picture. I joined the Energy Club to ensure that didn’t happen, and to meet people that would broaden my horizons on how technology and policy play into the energy landscape. I have learned so much with Energy Club and I have met incredible people that inspire me to positively impact the world. From national lab tours and energy conferences to meeting U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and the President of the World Bank, I can’t think of a better organization to be a part of especially with free pizza every week!

I joined the Energy Club because I wanted to get a bigger perspective on the issues in the energy field. Coming from a technical background, I assumed that new technologies would always be adopted because they were better than previous options. But it’s not that simple. There are so many policies and alternatives and implementation hurdles before you ever see an energy technology in your daily life. I have gained an enormous respect for challenges I had never known existed and I look forward to using that knowledge as I continue in a career in the energy space.
