As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.

Now in its fifth year, Veterans Advanced Energy Week is an interactive virtual learning and networking experience dedicated to Veterans, reservists, and military spouses working to strengthen US national security through careers in the advanced energy industry. Participants will gain insights into the technology, policy, and economic trends that are driving the global energy transition from senior leaders across the energy landscape.

This free, week-long conference will feature moderated panels, networking events, information sessions, and energy film screenings with experts across academia, government, and industry. Participants will also have the opportunity to connect with other Veterans and supporters and engage with potential employers through company introductions, a resume database, career development sessions, and job board postings.

All participants, event sponsors, and organizational representatives please register below through the online conference platform app below. The weeklong conference will take place on our virtual event platform. More information on how to download and navigate the app is forthcoming.
