MIT Energy Conference
March 11, 2024 @ 9:00 am – March 12, 2024 @ 6:00 pm EST
The MIT Energy Conference Team is thrilled to extend an invitation to the 2024 MIT Energy Conference: “Short and Long: A Balanced Approach to the Energy Transition,” taking place on March 11 and 12 at The Westin Copley Place, Boston. Join us for two exciting days of deep insights from expert speakers and panels, witnessing cutting-edge developments at our Tech Showcase, and connecting with brilliant attendees from government, industry, academia, VC, and more!
We plan to dive deep into nuanced discussions surrounding how to distribute resources between currently available energy solutions, where R&D is still required to reach sustainability goals, and what impact and tradeoffs policies have on the transition. From assessing the opportunities and challenges of scaling next-generation geothermal and nuclear systems for baseline power, identifying and exploring the intersections of energy and critical resources, navigating the evolving capital and skilled labor needs for the burgeoning sustainable technology sector, and assessing and learning from the impact of policy decisions, attendees will receive newfound insights into immediate and longer-term considerations for the energy transition.
Three of our confirmed keynotes for this year’s conference include:
Katie Rae, CEO & Managing Partner of Engine Ventures. She serves as a Board Member of multiple of The Engine Ventures’ portfolio companies, including Commonwealth Fusion Systems and Boston Metal. A seasoned investor and tech executive, Rae has invested in about 100 companies – including Pillpack and Flywire – served as an advisor to hundreds of founders, and co-founded the Equity Summit.
