Energy Chat: “The First Electric Vehicles”

Thursday, October 20th
Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons 325

Join us for a chat led by Jonah Bea-Taylor, a PhD student in History and Sociology. We will talk about the Electric Vehicle Company, one of the largest car manufactures in the country in 1899, that went out of business due to the internal combustion engine. Learn about the first electric vehicles and the history of the technology.

Free food and beverages will be provided!

Info Session: “Georgia Tech Industrial Assessment Center”

Thursday, October 20th
Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons 325

Would you like to have a paid opportunity to receive Department of Energy site assessment certification, while visiting and evaluating “real world” manufacturing plants and still taking classes?

Learn about these and related opportunities and benefits after this Thursday’s Energy Chat. Dr. Comas Haynes and Mr. Sinan Sinharoy will introduce the new Georgia Tech Industrial Assessment Center as well as explain how becoming a part of the organization will add to your skillset, credentials and network as an energy professional of the future.

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!
