The Price College of Business Energy Institute at the University of Oklahoma will host its fifth annual Energy Symposium, today, at the Devon Energy Center in Oklahoma City.
The event will feature two panel sessions: “Forces Shaping the Future of Energy – Global and U.S. Big Picture” and “Challenges and Opportunities in the U.S.”
The sessions will focus on the impact of technology and innovation in areas such as global supply and demand. Speakers from areas in business and academia will encourage discussion on challenges facing the energy industry. Energy Institute board of advisors members, Mike Stice and Bruce Stover, will moderate both panel sessions.
Dr. Dipankar Ghosh, Executive Director of the Energy Institute, said: “The Energy Symposium aims to address the most critical challenges facing the global energy industry today.
“The program will feature a number of experts who will be able to shed light on the topics from many perspectives. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the event.”
