Get ready to experience more opportunities for networking, learning, brainstorming, and career-changing connections than ever before at Fuze 22.

What to expect

Gain Insight

Want to learn something new or dive deep on a topic? We got you covered. With 100+ speakers from different energy disciplines, you will have a front-row seat to the future of the industry. 

Discover Tech

Come see the tech that is transforming the way we produce, distribute, and store energy through different formats such as pitch competitions, equipment expos, and tech demos.


Ditch the suits

Networking at industry events sucks. We create a relaxed atmosphere with an outdoor festival vibe — cold beer, food, and live music so you can connect with the builders, problem-solvers, and industry leaders.

The biggest names in energy will be there...will you?

In honor of the 2022 World Cup starting in November, we wanted to bring the same fun and competition to our pitch competition. Just like the World Cup, the winner takes all the glory…and prize money!

The format is a relatively simple 3 round tournament. After each round the judges and audience will vote for their favorites and they move on to the next round.

Spanning across the many tracks of Fuze, today’s leaders and innovators present a snapshot of the ideas that will transform the future of energy.
