By Invitation Only
The City Series – Pittsburgh is an invitation-only event with limited capacity, aiming to be inclusive and all-encompassing by welcoming diverse viewpoints from participants within and outside of the industry for true debate, dialogue, and formation of solutions. This event was presented by Energy Dialogues LLC, a distinguished international alliance of energy leaders, and took place at Carnegie Mellon University. Its objective was to bring subject matter experts, policymakers, socio-environmental representatives, and C-level leaders from all stages of the energy value chain together to connect and form partnerships through in-depth discussion of the energy market’s role in the economy and the world at large.
Energy Dialogues has provided a really nice platform to have very real conversations about issues that the natural gas industry faces. It is a place where environmental groups, environmental NGOs in particular, public leaders, public servants, and people from the energy industry as well as academics, like myself, can come together and hear perspectives from other people’s points of view. I think that is probably the biggest value that the Energy Dialogues platform provides, is the ability to share those views in an unbiased way so that everyone is really aware of the challenges that are faced in the multidimensional complex that is energy.
