Energy Industry Panel Discussion

Reliable Energy in Energy Transition 

SPE Members in Transition Hiring Event Panel Discussion will be hosted virtually on October 11th, 2021. The theme of the panel is "Reliable Energy in an Energy Transition

Upcoming ENERGY PROFESSIONALS HIRING EVENT in partnership with Texas Workforce Commission

In an ever-changing approach to manage energy resources, increase the efficiency of existing energy systems and reduce their carbon footprint, we are presenting a panel of experts who will share their expertise about CCS, geothermal energy, hydrogen technologies, and other renewables and what role they play in the energy transition. While leveraging the expertise from each of these different forms of energy, we can move towards decarbonizing the grid and, in the process, providing new job opportunities to oil and gas professionals.

The registration for the “Energy Professionals Hiring Event" is NOT included with the registration for the Panel Presentation, and attendance at the Panel Presentation is not required to attend the Hiring Event, but strongly recommended.  The job seeker registration for the “Energy Professionals Hiring Event" is now open.
