May 2nd, 2014 | The University Club, Chicago
Thank you to our generous sponsors, including EPIC and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. If you are interested in becoming a corporate sponsor, please contact the organizers for more information.
The past year has been a dynamic one for US energy markets. US oil and gas markets boomed, solar expanded rapidly as wind grappled with waning tax credits, and the power sector continued to see coal’s market share decline at the expense of gas. Join us for Chicago Booth’s Energy Forward 2014 conference as we examine the trends and opportunities that are defining the energy markets this year and beyond.
You’ll gain insights from industry leaders, network with investors and practitioners, and plant yourself firmly in the center of Chicago’s energy community. Topics and questions addressed will include: the outlook for US oil markets and upstream activity, US energy exports, outlook for the US power sector, venture capital and private equity activity in energy, and innovative new energy business models.
