There is so much occurring with energy policy and decision-making today at the local, state, federal and international levels. As decision-makers weigh their choices, it’s important to understand tradeoffs, cross-sectoral value, and likely impacts.

The Energy Policy Conference recognizes the pivotal nature of these choices at this time, which is why we are focusing on Disruption and Megatrends in Energy. This conference series is one of the longest-running and largest conferences that focuses directly on energy policy. It is a premier, interdisciplinary forum in North America that examines issues and opportunities tied to energy decision-making. It does so, with timely discussion and research that fosters in-depth, cross-cutting exchanges of ideas. Our attendees join from national labs, public agencies, non-profits, industry, thinktanks, and academia. We are celebrating our 10th Anniversary with an all-virtual conference that features 5 keynote addresses by energy leaders, plenary sessions on resilience in the power sector and the future of electric vehicles, an Expo Hall for sponsors and posters, research panels and roundtables, Energy trivia, networking, and more.

Join us for Energy Trivia Night with Boise State’s very own Andy Giacomazzi!
