Understanding Energy Options: LNG?

 Registration is closed for this event
Networking 5:00PM-6:00PM, presentation begins at 6:00PM

The global energy focus is at a compelling inflection point and the Pacific north west has an opportunity to affect change pertaining to our energy mix. Speed and agility certainly play an important role for industry, however, serendipity is also needed in attracting both capital and consumer interest in the energy sector. Quoting one of our speakers, “We have labile objectives, incomplete knowledge and make decisions less rationally than we would like to believe.”  The upcoming GTEx Forum aims to provide insight and draw your attention to multiple variables in the energy debate including LNG and renewables. 

October 29th, 2014 5:00 PM   through   8:00 PM
