About the 2016 Energy Conference

During this two-day conference, a series of keynote speeches, panel discussions, and breakout sessions provided an in-depth analysis of the key developments and challenges facing both our global and domestic energy markets. We analyzed how technology is transforming the energy industry, just like it has changed the telecommunications, financial services, retail, and automotive industries. We discussed how the ubiquitous deployment of networked sensors, microprocessors, mobile technology, and analytics have already played into the energy value chain, and how it will change business models.
