The Rice Energy Finance Summit (REFS) is an annual student-led conference promoting forward-looking discussions on the most relevant energy finance, investment and strategy topics affecting the global energy industry. The conference serves as a distinguished platform for senior executives, investors, advisors and policymakers to share their perspective with over 400 fellow energy industry professionals and Rice University students, alumni, faculty and staff.

The 11th annual Rice Energy Finance Summit will be held on Friday, November 1, 2019 on the campus of Rice University in Houston, Texas. Our strategic theme this year, Shifting Goalposts: Energy at the Nexus of Capital Discipline and Value Creation, aims to explore the linkages between the industry’s commitment to capital discipline and the imperative to generate sustainable returns for investors, all against a backdrop of changing business models, capital markets constraints, increasing private ownership and uncertain growth prospects.
