The Asia-Montana Energy Summit

The Asia-Montana Energy Summit (AMES) took place April 29 - 30, 2015 at the University of Montana. AMES was a strategic initiative led by the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center to address the complex issues surrounding the future of energy and how it shapes our global environment, economy, and society.

AMES brought together international thinkers, business leaders, and policy influencers as keynote speakers and panelists to discuss energy trends around the world, critical developments in energy technology and policy, and opportunities for cooperation between the United States and Asia.
Like previous Mansfield Center conferences, the AMES Expert Conference was free and open to the public.  Conference attendees included community members, students, professors and teachers, civic leaders, media representatives, business executives, policy officials, and energy stakeholders from the United States and Northeast Asia interested in promoting public education, engaging in constructive dialogue, and encouraging collaboration around these vital issues.
