Creating Change

"At ConocoPhillips, we believe that all energy sources will be needed in the future, including alternative and renewable sources.

The University of Texas’ Energy Management and Innovation Center creates a forum to have energy issues addressed in an objective fashion.

Supporting the Energy Management and Innovation Center is an opportunity for us to help advance the development of students who are knowledgeable about the industry and commercialize the advancement of energy technology.”

Rex Bennett

We seek collaboration with professionals who have informed points of view and a passion for our mission, sharing a willingness to participate in the give and take of vigorous intellectual evaluation. Together, with our partners, we can provide thought leadership in the energy space and train the next generation of energy leaders.
