The Energy Series

A discussion on the Energy Industry and Energy Transition opportunities for Lafayette and Acadiana Businesses.

Energy Series

Lafayette and Acadiana have a long, rich history in the energy industry since oil was discovered near Jennings in 1901. From the establishment of the Oil Center in the 1950s to the challenges of the 1980s, today's energy industry has evolved and is more advanced than ever. Where are we now? Where is the industry headed? And, how can Lafayette and Acadiana businesses position themselves at the forefront of the next wave of energy innovation?
