Please join us on Tuesday, August 13 at 1 North Upper Wacker Drive (downtown Chicago) from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m CST for the 2019 Veterans Advanced Energy Summit. This full-day event will bring together veterans, veteran spouses, and other interested individuals from around the country to learn about key developments in the advanced energy sector, interact with leaders in business and policy, and open doors to new career opportunities.

We are excited to announce that a limited number of travel scholarships will be made available for interested veterans, active duty, reservists, and military spouses thanks to the generous support of Exelon Corporation. Click here to apply now!

Military service equips veterans with crucial skills from teamwork and leadership to critical thinking and problem solving that make them ideal for careers in fast changing energy markets. The Veterans Advanced Energy Summit is designed to provide insight into the trends, technologies, and policies that are shaping the sector and to develop a community of veterans committed to continue service to the country.

Now in its third year, the summit has become a leading forum for experts in industry, academia, and government to share perspectives on new technologies and emerging trends in energy. The summit is unique in offering veterans and their spouses, whether already active in the energy industry or in the process of transitioning to civilian life, exposure to key leaders and contacts that can help shape their next chapters in an impactful direction.
