NAE Topical Meeting - "Shale Gas: Promises and Challenges"

Tuesday, June 18, 2013 (All day) - Wednesday, June 19, 2013 (All day)

Meeting the world’s energy needs remains one of the top engineering challenges of our time—and continues to be a research priority at the Case School of Engineering. Domestic natural gas production is expected to grow by 44 percent in the next 30 years, and the U.S. Energy Information Administration attributes the majority of that increase to shale gas. We invite you to join the national conversation about this rapidly growing segment of the energy industry by attending Shale Gas: Promises and Challenges this June.

Hosted by Case Western Reserve University, the event serves as the 2013 National Academy of Engineering Topical Meeting. The conference will be held June 18-19 at Severance Hall. Attendance is free, but registration is required. Please register here.

Energy and industry experts from across the country will discuss everything from energy security to the technology used to produce power from shale gas to the environmental and economic impact of production. Each panel discussion will include time for audience Q&A.
