The coronavirus had us all on the edges of our seats and threw a wrench in events around the world, but it didn’t stop thousands of people across the globe from attending Energy 2.0 in Houston, online, and Denver March 9-11, 2020. (London, which was scheduled for March 24, is a different story. We hope to get something on the books as soon as travel restrictions are lifted and are targeting November. Watch for details!)
Even though the unconference was slated to have a virtual component long before coronavirus became a concern, the combination of streaming and virtual interaction via our dedicated conference app brought connectivity during a time of fragmentation and enabled everyone, including online participants, in-person attendees, and speakers, to explore the themed topics: equality, the environment, and the new economy, as well as the emerging market and virus concerns.
A huge thank you to everyone who took part in or supported this event and contributed to its success. We’ve put together this page to serve as an archive; ideal if you attended and would like to revisit portions and want more information or if you missed the event and want to catch the replay.
