Idaho Technology Council – Energy Connected 2016

Transportation Innovation: Moving Toward the Future 
When: Late afternoon of Tuesday, March 1, and all day, Wednesday, March 2
Where: Zion’s Bank Executive Conference Rooms downtown Boise

Development of advanced vehicle technology will bolster our economy through reducing fuel costs, improving energy security, and supporting domestic industry. It’s estimated that at least 250 million vehicles are in use in the United States today and oil dependence cost the U.S. $171 billion in lost potential GDP in 2012. To close this opportunity gap, technologies such as advanced control systems, energy storage, and cyber security are coalescing to enable innovative new solutions. Idaho companies and the Idaho National Lab are at the forefront of this revolution and commercializing new technologies to create and deploy advanced vehicles.

The 6th annual 2016 Energy Connected Conference is an opportunity to….

  • Participate in a two-day conference focused on bringing together Idaho’s ecosystem of energy and technology entrepreneurs, utilities and other industry players, along with investors and sources of venture capital.
  • Learn what others are doing, make connections, and identify opportunities.
  • Work together to build a broad energy technology sector in Idaho and position Idaho companies to have a global impact!

“Breakfast with Fosbury and Friends”

Dick Fosbury and Simplot Games are thrilled to have Olympic Gold Medalist, Steve Hooker, as the 2016 Breakfast Speaker. The Aussie pole vault sensation is the first Australian man to ever hold both the Olympic and world titles concurrently.

One of the stars of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Hooker became the first Australian field athlete to win Olympic gold in 60 years, the first Australian male track or field gold medalist since 1968 and the first Australian athletics Olympic champion since Cathy Freeman in 2000.

Hooker’s win in Beijing was also the first for an Australian in that event. In dramatic circumstances, Hooker twice cleared clutch jumps on his third attempt in the final, before clinching the gold medal with yet another third attempt clearance at 5.90m (19.36 feet). With the gold medal secured he went on to break the Olympic record with another third and final attempt heart-stopper at 5.96m (19.55 feet).

His topic will be “Steve Hooker – Raising the Bar.” You will not want to miss this! Purchase your tickets early for Breakfast for Fosbury and Friends. The event is Friday, February 19, 2016 at 7:30 a.m. at the Red Lion Hotel (1555 Pocatello Creek Road) in Pocatello, ID. Tickets are $20 each or $190 for a table of 10. Tax not included.
