Manufacturing Innovation on Full Display at AEIC

May – June 2022

Innovation and technology are key drivers in the manufacturing and energy industries.  These two industries intersect at the upcoming Appalachian Energy Innovation Collaborative being hosted June 16th at the Hilton Garden Inn/Southpointe. After a competitive process, six companies have been selected to have their technologies highlighted at the conference.

There are many solutions still to be developed and the conference will have energy experts discuss the current and future needs of the industry. Whether it is adapting current technologies, or developing new ones, the energy industry is looking for partners to help continue to innovate and advance the energy needs of Appalachia.

There are still a few exhibitor tables available.  If you have a product or idea that you want to highlight, reach out to the Shale POWER team for more information or to discuss your offering.

Learn more about the technologies to be highlighted at the conference:
