Hosted Caltech Facilities for the fourth year in a row, the Caltech Energy Forum was our most successful yet with the theme "MAKING BIG DATA WORK.” It was an all day event hosted at the Caltech Athenaeum featuring six sessions and an interactive “Speed DATA’ing” lunch session.

One hundred fifty people attended from a variety of sectors including education, entertainment, healthcare, architecture, engineering, construction, real estate and energy service provider industries.
