2016 marks the second “Earth, Wind, & Fire Summit” energy conference in the state of Texas. This two day weekend event promises to provide attendees with not only a global view of America’s energy portfolio, discussing both traditional and renewable forms of energy, but also will focus on the state of energy in Texas with an eye toward our energy future. The conference is designed for the members of the public, students, and elected officials who want the opportunity to learn about a wide array of energy issues. Our aim is to answer some of today’s pressing questions raised by the public and the media surrounding energy issues, emerging technologies, and the environment. From practical information for homeowners regarding the latest offerings in residential solar to examining the environmental and human impacts associated with energy production, this conference has broad audience appeal with a diverse range of topics. The Earth Wind & Fire Energy Summit II is again sponsored by the Dallas Sierra Club and various other conservation organizations. Speakers include well-known academics, policymakers and professional representatives from associations that focus on energy issues.
