Welcome to YPE Pittsburgh
Young Professionals in Energy (YPE) is the first and only inter-disciplinary networking and volunteer organization for young people in the global energy industry; a place where bankers can connect with engineers, accountants with geologists and so on. Our mission is to provide a forum for knowledge sharing and camaraderie among future leaders of the energy industry.
The Natural Gas Economy
Governor Corbett supplied a full circle "brass tacks" speech about shale gas and the energy industry to a packed house of energy professionals at the Hilton Garden Inn in Southpointe, Pennsylvania. The Governor highlighted the tremendous benefits the Marcellus and Utica Shales have for this region and state, focusing on employment and continued innovation. Young Professionals in Energy, a 10,000+ member-strong group of professionals from all ends of the energy spectrum hosted the event entitled "The Natural Gas Economy." To say the least, it was a huge success, ending with a standing ovation. http://ypepittsburgh.org/beta/?events=the-natural-gas-economy
