UT Energy Symposium (Weekly)

Event Date: 
February 7, 2023 to April 18, 2023

The University of Texas at Austin (UT) Energy Symposium is a weekly guest lecture series that is both free and open to the public and available for course credit.

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 24th semester in spring 2023.

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.

Each UTES talk will be recorded and posted here and on the Energy Institute YouTube channel following the event.

Day & Time: Tuesday, 12:30-1:45 p.m. CT / 1:30-2:45 ET.

How: Stream online (via Zoom or YouTube)
