Quotes from Previous Attendees

  • It really is a great conference for our region – a lot of other conferences I’ve been to do not get as much attendance from students and recent graduates. I think this really gives EnergyPath a unique value.

  • I am here to do networking for my job. It's been awesome because there are a lot of diverse groups for making connections. This is supposed to be regional, but I have found an international presence.

    — Malcolm W.

  • I attended last year and found a wealth of energy information. I came back this year to network and get new information. It is like attending a mini-college course in energy effectiveness.
