This year, the first ever virtual Berkeley Energy & Resources Collaborative (BERC) Energy Summit will explore the theme “Energizing the Recovery”, focusing on the energy sector’s role in recovering stronger and cleaner in light of the ongoing global pandemic.

COVID-19 lockdowns and the resulting economic slowdown has dealt the biggest blow to the US economy since the Great Depression, with similar impacts worldwide. As governments deploy large economic stimulus packages, there are increasing calls to invest this money in an equitable green recovery, simultaneously reducing CO2 emissions and boosting the economy in a way that benefits all communities. In response to these calls, BERC’s annual energy conference spotlights the role that clean energy will play in tackling climate change while aiding the economic recovery from the greatest crisis our generation has seen.

This year’s Summit will examine the medium-to-long term actions that will need to be taken across diverse sectors such as transportation, energy markets, and technology in the US and globally. We welcome you to join us as we hear from experts on the frontlines of policy and innovation and build community with fellow energy enthusiasts in multiple networking events during the BERC 2021 Summit.
