The Energy & Infrastructure Club at Columbia Business School plans and organizes a variety of events. Our objective is to connect our club members to companies, organizations, colleagues, and professionals operating in the space.
Annual Energy Symposium
The Columbia Energy Symposium is the largest student-run energy event in New York City, bringing together more than 300 energy professionals, students, faculty, leaders, and executives representing industry, government, and society, to explore and advance our insights into today's challenging energy questions. Key topics for discussion will include geopolitics of renewable energy, clean energy finance, corporation's role in clean energy advancement, future of electric vehicles, grid digitalization, and peak oil.
The Symposium is a joint collaboration between Columbia University’s SIPA Energy Association (SEA), CBS Energy Club, the Green Business Club, Engineering Energy Club, and the Environmental Law Society.
