BERC Energy Summit

The BERC Energy Summit, now in its 14th year, is the largest student-run energy conference on the West Coast. This year’s event comes at a critical moment with greater climate awareness and shifts in energy policy than ever before, and will focus on the theme, “Bringing Energy Communities Together for Innovation.” Held at UC Berkeley, the event draws around 500 students, researchers, clean technology entrepreneurs, policymakers, and industry leaders to discuss the world’s most pressing energy challenges each year.

BERC provides members with opportunities to engage with cutting-edge research and current industry applications through various programs and summits throughout the year.

The Berkeley Energy & Resources Collaborative (BERC) is a multidisciplinary network of UC Berkeley students, alumni, faculty, industry professionals, and advisors who seek to turn world-leading research into world-changing solutions by tackling tough and timely energy and environmental challenges.
