Appalachian Energy Summit

The 2016 Appalachian Energy Summit (AES) is the 5th annual energy leadership gathering of UNC’s 17 campuses and many colleges and universities from across the country. This one-of-a-kind event convenes academia, industry, and students in a transformational effort that is truly delivering meaningful ecological, financial and social benefit. 

The Summit’s 2016 theme, “Knowledge. Collaboration. Action.” speaks to the knowledge we possess as a collective, the collaborative opportunities that exist between higher education and our valued business partners, and ultimately, the sense of urgency and action we all must embrace in this important work and its meaningful goals.

The 2016 Mid-Year Summit was held February 16, 2016 at UNC Pembroke.
