Energy Days is an annual conference (May 30–31, 2018) that brings together leaders from across the energy realm, including members of industry, government, non-profits, and academia. The purpose is to identify and discuss the regional, national, and global energy challenges facing society. In addition to plenary sessions, there are a series of focused workshops on key topics where specific and compelling outcomes are in reach.

Ultimately, the conference looks to create new partnerships that provide results and innovative solutions to energy challenges.

Impact is the ultimate desired outcome for Energy Days.

Energy Days aims to build a network of engaged stakeholders and identify areas where Penn State can be a strong partner in education, research, and a place to learn by doing.

At Penn State, we believe universities can and should do more to strengthen that foundation, and we can accelerate the trajectory of fundamental discovery and applied innovation through deeper partnerships with government, industry, and civil society.

Energy Days is a two-day conference that is designed to elicit input and engagement from a diverse range of stakeholders. It includes a day and a half of both formal and informal discussions.

Additionally, Energy Days features a poster session that highlights the breakthrough research occurring at the University.

Energy Days attendees include individuals with a wide range of interests, including those in the energy industry, government agencies, and nongovernmental organizations. In addition, Penn State students, faculty, administrators, and staff from a variety of colleges, departments, and institutes also attend. Expertise ranges from engineering and nuclear physics, to law, policy, and economics.

Energy Days 2018 is May 30–31, 2018 at The Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center.
