Clean Energy Beers is held on the first Monday of every month after work at Uncle Billy’s Brew & Que. Clean Energy Beers started off in April 2009 as an informal extension of Dr. Michael Webber’s office hours at U.T., and has evolved into a regular gathering of those interested and involved in cleantech. Five years later, the monthly tradition is still going strong.
“Clean Energy Beers has no formal agenda – it’s laid-back fun, with only one requirement – you have to like at least one of the following: beer, bar-b-que, or clean energy,” said Dr. Webber.
The event brings together a wide variety of people from Austin’s growing clean energy community. Most months, about 75 people show up for Clean Energy Beers: job hunters looking for work, employers looking for employees, investors looking for inventors, inventors looking for investors, business partners seeking deals, “and people who just like hanging around other people who like energy.”
Free Admission. See Uncle Billy’s menu for food and drink prices.

With every passing day, society’s reliance on fossil fuels further exacerbates the climate change crisis. The reality of climate change impacts on central Texas is sobering—unless we move past fossil fuels, even more severe storms, droughts, and extreme heat will become the new normal.
Knowing these facts while watching Trump pull the US from the Paris climate Change agreement was horrifying. Fortunately, Trump’s decision has served to galvanize many local leaders to redouble their action—Austin Mayor Steve Adler is one of those local climate leaders reaffirming commitment to the Paris Accord. Solar Austin is excited to present Mayor Adler as our August Happy Hour speaker.
Mayor Adler will share his views on the decision to pull out of the Paris agreement and how Austin fits in among a coalition of cities both taking action right now and planning future efforts to reduce our carbon footprint and general environmental impact.
Austin’s Community Climate Plan provides a roadmap for the Austin community to achieve carbon neutrality no later than 2050 through efforts to reduce and hopefully eliminate greenhouse gas emissions from electricity production, natural gas, transportation, solid waste management and industrial processes. Action items include investing in renewable energy, investment in energy storage, mass transit, expanding composting, and promulgation of electric vehicles and smart grid technologies.
Join us to hear from Mayor Adler about Austin’s efforts to reduce the community’s impact on the climate and what you can do to make a difference.
