More than two dozen reporters from across the country attended the second annual UT Energy Journalism Workshop, Sept. 27-28, 2017 on the UT Austin campus.
The event, hosted by the Energy Institute with support from the university’s School of Journalism and School of Law, featured presentations from faculty and other energy researchers on a range of topics, from groundbreaking research into methane hydrates to sustainable building design and the latest trends in mobility services.
The two-day workshop is open to journalists who regularly cover energy and environmental issues. A fast-paced format of presentations and panel discussions is designed to provide reporters, editors, and producers direct access to some of the world’s leading energy experts in an informal setting. While the material presented during the event is on the record, the workshop is not explicitly aimed at generating news coverage.
The workshop includes domestic travel, lodging, and complimentary meals. Space is limited to 25 participants, with access granted on a first-come, first-serve basis to credentialed journalists.
