Why the La Jolla Energy Conference?

Every May the Institute of the Americas brings together thought leaders from government, industry, and civil society to facilitate dialogue, inform rational policymaking, and foster a deeper understanding of the Western Hemisphere’s most critical energy and sustainability issues. This year, in addition to Workshops led by international experts focused on issues such as community engagement and local content, they are adding several pre-conference activities slated for the afternoon of May 22 and the morning of May 23.
