The 2017 VJEL Symposium, The Energy Transition, on October 20, 2017, was a huge success and we are thankful to all those who attended and tuned in via our livestream. The turnout was impressive, and attendees’ insightful questions led to an exciting and informative discussion. In an age where energy touches upon everything we do, we will be applying those lessons for years to come.
