How are the nation’s energy innovators building a more sustainable future even in the Trump era? Industry leaders, researchers and top government officials will answer that urgent question at the Berkeley Energy & Resources Collaborative (BERC)’s annual Energy Summit - the biggest student-run energy conference in the western U.S. Discussions will address this year’s theme: Bridging Divides & Building A New Energy Paradigm.

From February 22 to 23 at UC Berkeley, hundreds of energy professionals will hear from top change makers such as Christine Harada - the Obama Administration’s Chief Sustainability Officer - and Greentech Media Senior Vice President Shayle Kann, who will record his popular podcast, The Interchange, at the Summit. Nearly two dozen speakers, including Canadian Consul General Rana Sarkar, will tackle pressing challenges such as energy and national security, funding future energy solutions, and equity in distributed resources. Examples of cutting-edge energy research and technology from UC Berkeley labs will fill the Summit’s Innovation Expo.
