The 37th IAEE International Conference in New York City was an unambiguous success, drawing 583 attendees from 44 separate countries. Attendees spanned across diverse sectors, with 454 energy professionals and 129 students. As IAEE president Omowumi Iledare said in his opening remarks, IAEE is approaching 5000 global members, and we are well placed to address global access to energy, energy best practices, and resource and environmental stewardship. A hallmark of our organization is within- and across-sector interaction of business professionals, government representatives and academia that helps us to solve global issues. The theme of the conference, “Energy & the Economy,” was timely in that the U.S. is anticipated to overtake Russia and Saudi Arabia as the largest producers of natural gas and oil in the world in 2014. The conference explored the domestic and global implications of this shift, the extent to which the shale revolution will be replicated worldwide, and the benefits and costs such a global revolution would have.
