Event - Energy Industry Panel Discussion: Reliable Energy in an Energy Transition ( 

Reliable Energy in an Energy Transition

Where do we go from here?

SPE Gulf Coast Section - Members in Transition committee presents the Event Industry Panel discussion. This event will include industry discussion and guidance for members in transition. This portion of the event is virtual and scheduled for early October 2021. This is a great event to consider attending if you are participating in the Virtual Hiring Event.

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.
