Featured Session: Geothermal and the Promise of Clean Energy Abundance

Mar 9, 2024

10:00am – 11:00am CT

A passionate advocate for geothermal energy as the natural and obvious future business model for the oil and gas industry and the missing link to meeting or exceeding 2050 climate goals, Beard has been credited with catalyzing a wave of investment and engagement by oil and gas entities in the geothermal space, and with recruiting and mentoring hundreds of new voices into the geothermal industry. She gave a talk at SXSW in 2019 about the role of the oil and gas industry in building the future of geothermal energy, a TED talk on the same topic in 2021, and was featured in a Wired Magazine cover story in June of 2023.
