How do we provide clean, reliable energy to a society that has become more environmentally aware in a way that is sustainable? 

With Houston being the Energy Capital of the World, it’s no secret that the Lone Star State is home to companies that are looking to find solutions for how society implements and executes the transition from fossil fuel to clean energy.   

In 2022 with the 14th Annual IEEE Green Technology Conference (GreenTech 2022), professionals will partner with industry leaders to showcase innovative solutions to one of the most important questions of the 21st century. In this article we will showcase the organization and volunteers behind this initiative and the impact it holds within the future of green technology.   

The IEEE Green Technology Conference (GreenTech) was developed to address one of the most pressing challenges of our time: to produce green and clean energy in the 21st century to help conserve the environment. GreenTech’s main areas of interest include but are not limited to renewable energy and smart grids, energy generation, transmission, distribution and storage, transportation, electrification. The aim of GreenTech is to serve as a medium for professionals from academia, research centers, and industries worldwide to discuss and present the latest developments and applications related to the challenges of securing green and energy sources. This conference will highlight collaboration from professionals of various backgrounds to address the challenges of the production process, energy grid operations, and brainstorm solutions to build a reliable and sustainable power grid.  

With the GreenTech Conference going to its 14th year, the IEEE Houston section will be hosting and organizing the event. The Houston Section is committed to providing everyone involved with GreenTech with a premium experience. We look forward to students and professionals being inspired by the different ideas such as alternatives for energy generation, distribution, storage, and their regulations being presented. The daunting task of planning a conference takes a lot of responsibility in order to help the attendees, presenters, and speakers feel safe after the past two years. To make this possible, the responsibility has been divided between several members of our organizing committee and community partners. Without their support, this conference would not be possible. We want to highlight some individuals with our conference, and we know that we could not function without our volunteer leaders. 

The volunteers who have been taking the lead on this project are dedicating their time to provide the attendees and participants with the best experience possible.  The Houston Sections once again extends our thanks to the volunteers who have donated their time to help make GreenTech a great experience. The IEEE Green Technology conference will be held at the Hilton Houston North Hotel near the George Intercontinental Airport from March 30, 2022 until April 1, 2022. If you would like to be involved you may contact us to find out how.
