Charlotte people design energy systems, make the products, drive efficiency, provide the services and deliver megawatts and dekatherms that make industry hum.
The concept is simple: “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself,” according to Henry Ford. We drive progress by working together.
In fact, Charlotte’s collaborative instinct is our most energetic trait. Our energy sector gains steam from our cluster effect. We have singular and strong energy players. Our collective network has a long reach, incredible depth and influence.
Success in the energy industry is built on a foundation of capabilities: An ample and able workforce, reliable and affordable energy resources, inventiveness and a diversified supplier network.
That’s why nearly 200 energy companies and some 15,000 employees feel at home in Charlotte.
