A group of McCombs CleanTech Group (CTG) students recently visited eight companies in the Bay Area representing energy developers, energy management software companies, utilities, and sustainability-minded B Corps. This annual career trek, which students independently plan and organize each January, provides CTG members with the opportunity to learn more about the clean energy industry have candid conversations with companies about their strategy, challenges, and prospects for MBAs. This year the following companies were gracious enough to host the CTG.
- Advanced Microgrid Solutions
- Bloom Energy
- Enel X
- First Solar
- Method – People Against Dirty
- Pacific Gas & Electric
Said trip organizer Claire Austin, “The treks are a great way for students with a general interest in renewables and sustainability to learn more about the different players in the sector; having the opportunity to visit companies in person gives students a real feel for the company culture.”
The McCombs CleanTech Group also hosts regular treks in Austin, Houston, and other cities. We are so grateful to the CTG Alumni network for hosting us and helping us connect to innovative companies in their respective cities.
