2016 Energy Inc. Summit: 
Energy Tech and Trade & The Carolinas Energy Leadership Awards

The Carolinas have the largest energy economy in the eastern U.S. and are among the most diverse in the world. Energy Inc. is the region’s annual energy business benchmark conference -- a trade show, luncheon, awards ceremony and networking event focused on the latest energy industry trends and business opportunities in the Carolinas.

2016 is the seventh consecutive year for this energy industry conference. It attracts large multi-national audiences. Each year the executive panels examine and interpret important energy trends. In 2016, recognizing the prominence nationally and globally of the Carolinas’ energy economy, Energy, Inc. elevates the scope of discussion from regional to global, addressing factors influencing the Carolinas’ global energy technology leadership and its emergence as a global energy trade partner.

As part of our 2016 Energy Inc. Summit, we will be recognizing the 2016 Energy Leadership Award winners during a special awards program highlighting their achievements in the energy industry.
