This past Saturday was Earth Day 2019 at Huston-Tillotson University. It was amazing to be able to participate in the festival, but it was also great to see so many people and organizations that care about the Earth. There were many popular organizations such as Imperfect Produce, Citizens’ Climate Lobby, and the Texas Campaign for the Environment. However, there were also many companies that I had never heard of, such as Clean Sleep, which is a company that sanitizes mattresses and helps hotels, dorms, and other commercial and residential areas save money and reduce waste. Earth Day was an amazing event to go to, as it allowed me to see and learn about many of the sustainable and eco-friendly organizations in Austin and in Texas. I was also able to learn about up and coming projects that different organizations had, such as the US Green Building Council-Texas Chapter and their education programs/workshops as well as the 2019 USGBC Texas Energy Summit that they will be hosting in November. There were many companies promoting solar and cleaner energy, and it was great to be able to learn so much about what each organization was trying to achieve. Earth Day is the best place to go if one wants to learn more about green initiatives that are happening, and I can’t wait for next year.

For the lucky, we flip the switch, and the light comes on every time. For others, it’s a gamble for a flicker. Today’s global electricity system is a complex web of wires, infrastructure and an ever-growing list of new tech, but how is our industry respecting it? Loving your energy is not only about appreciating its loyalty, but more importantly all the moving parts that make it happen.
Join us on April 15 – 18, 2019 in Austin, Texas to celebrate six years of ETS as we honor the heroes that help provide safe and reliable electricity, as well as debate the realistic state and future of energy.

Join us for a global tour of energy: the builder of human civilization and also its greatest threat. Energy is humanity’s most important resource. It has allowed us to secure life-sustaining resources, build reliable infrastructure, connect continents, and democratize wealth. But our insatiable hunger for more and cheaper energy has also pushed us to the edge of a global crisis, beset by innumerable environmental disasters, trenchant geopolitical struggles, and an alarmingly warming planet. For better and worse, no other physical resource has had such a wide-ranging impact on our ecosystems, economy, public health, and personal liberties.
Michael E. Webber presents his new book and shares the story of how societies develop can be told largely in terms of how they manage energy sources through time. The evening will also include a panel discussion with energy thought leaders, and live music.
