About 500 people attended UT Energy Week 2018, an annual exploration of topical energy issues facing society sponsored by the University of Texas at Austin.
The conference, now in its fourth year, brought together experts from industry, academia, government and regulatory agencies, and non-profit organizations to explore the latest trends, new technologies, and pressing challenges in the world of energy.
