Emerging scientific discoveries and new technologies suggest the possibility of new models of energy production and delivery, new means of expanding access to energy, and new tools for transforming energy's social and environmental impacts.
PopTech and our partners will convene a curated group of energy innovators, senior leaders, investors, technologists and change agents for a one-of-a-kind exploration.

Stay tuned as more presenters will be announced shortly.
Topics we'll explore include:
- The characteristics of successful energy disruptors
- Lessons we can learn from effective transformations of non-energy industries
- Technologies that might alter the existing energy economy
- Technologies that might 'disrupt the disruptors' and embolden the incumbents
The Salon is designed as an intimate, peer-level conversation among a diverse group of innovators and leaders. Seating is very limited. Please click here to request your registration.
This program is being presented in partnership with Thomson Reuters, the King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center (KAPSARC), and the Duke University Center for Energy, Development and the Global Environment.
