The Current: January Happy Hour
Thursday, January 8, 2015 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM
The Current is a collaborative monthly happy hour and networking series. On the first Thursday of every month, we welcome entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, nonprofits, technologists, and investors to Coalition: Energy’s downtown coworking space to network, discuss, and celebrate the buzzing energy innovation community in Chicago.
On January 8th, we’re excited to partner with the City of Chicago’s Office of Sustainability. We invite you to head over to Coalition: Energy, grab a couple of snacks and beer from our office kegerator, and join us for what will be a fun and “energized” evening.
The Smart Grid Program at the City of Chicago is educating residents and businesses about smart meters and energy efficiency to help people achieve energy and financial savings with the new technology. The Program is holding workshops and events to reach residents with tools and information directly, while collecting their feedback to improve the roll out of smart grid across the City.
