In March of 2014, Power Across Texas invited Group NIRE’s CEO Mark Harral, to be a panelist at their conference, Bright Future: A Glimpse at the Energy Innovations being developed by our Texas Universities in Austin.

“Power Across Texas Conference showcased what multiple Texas Universities are doing to advance the energy industry. The conference allowed attendees to understand how to better interact and work with these universities,” Harral said.

PAT’s mission is to advance the understanding and conversation on issues critical to the energy industry through helping find solutions, learning from experts, exchanging information, networking and connecting with peers and policymakers.

At the conference, Harral revealed the new technology innovations Group NIRE and Texas Tech University have made to advance the energy industry, not only in West Texas but internationally. Panelists came from various Texas universities and ranged in different leadership positions in environmental organizations.
