As we have done at previous International Student Energy Summits, the conversation during SES2017 will revolve around Student Energy’s three main pillars: Markets and Regulations, Technology and Innovation, and Global Energy Dynamics. Diverse perspectives on political, technical, economic and social aspects of energy are always encouraged. The program is built by students for students and as such we hope to inspire new ways of thinking and an overall collaboration of ideas and approaches.

The role of fossil fuels in the future of the Energy Sector
Coal, oil and gas. What role will they play in the next few years?
