In an effort to provide a multi-disciplinary platform for UT faculty and students to interact on the most pressing energy issues facing our world, the Energy Institute sponsors the UT Energy Symposium (UTES), which will enter its eleventh semester in fall 2016. The UTES serves as a “convener” for the campus community, uniting students interested in energy issues with faculty and others working on sustainable energy security.
Students who register for the symposium receive one credit hour for the 15-week seminar course, which is open to both undergraduate and graduate students.
Ongoing themes for UTES include climate change policy, innovation and diffusion of energy technologies, low-carbon technology options and status, and behavioral aspects of energy consumption.
The symposium will be held in the Avaya Auditorium (POB 2.302) from 5:15 p.m. – 6:15 p.m. Refreshments will be served in the ACES Connector Lobby at 4:45 p.m., followed by a 45-minute presentation and a 15-minute Q&A session.
Each session of the UTES will be video recorded and posted on the Energy Institute’s website.
The fall 2016 speaker schedule will be posted in August.
If you need an accommodation to participate in this event, please contact Christa Hopkins, who can be reached at 512-475-8447, no later than five (5) business days prior to the event.
