What we do

QGEC is a weekend-long conference connecting students with industry leaders in the energy sector. The 2019 conference took place on January 18 – 20th in Kingston, Ontario. The 2019 theme was “Sailing Through Changing Tides” and focused on change in the energy industry. The 2019/2020 QGEC Executive Committee is working hard to prepare the upcoming conference which will take place on January 18 – 19th, 2020 in Kingston, Ontario with the 2020 theme “A Call to Action.”

Attending QGEC 2018 was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only did I make new friends, I learned so much about possible solutions to the global energy crisis. They made sure to show multiple perspectives on the same issue, making the conference open to everyone regardless of their discipline and interests. I left the weekend with renewed enthusiasm for a sustainable planet and hope for a better future!

The Queen’s Global Energy Conference was the best conference I have attended at Queen’s. There were opportunities to hear industrial leaders speak, network with professionals, and participate in case competitions. Throughout the weekend, mentors were open to speaking with students and imparting their knowledge. I would recommend this conference to anyone who is interested in energy and innovation!
