There will be no Energy Chat this week due to the Clemson football game.
However, if you want to support the white and gold while expanding your energy horizons, then come by GE’s tailgate. Discuss the future of iron, big data and much more all while enjoying some free BBQ! Make sure you RSVP here.
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
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.
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!
