About Us

The Wharton Energy Network (WEN) is the alumni association for energy professionals at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. With over 4,500 members, WEN aims to power the energy transition through connections and opportunities for sustainable wealth creation.

Our mission is to support Wharton alumni and the broader Penn community in leading the energy transformation by providing a central hub for forging connections and fostering lifelong learning about the business future of energy and climate.



The New Vision for the Wharton Energy Network 

From the Wharton Energy Network Board


Dear Wharton alumni,

The next ten years will be critical for the future of energy and the planet. Wharton alumni will play a crucial role in what that future will look like. Our goal is to empower those of you who are leading the charge.

We are focused on bringing together our community of over 4,500 alumni members through three pillars:

  • Reinvigorating our value proposition to members:  Helping you stay connected with your fellow alumni and providing content that keeps you at the cutting edge. We will take advantage of virtual events so that our programs can reach more alumni.
  • Strengthening our connection to the Wharton ecosystem:  Greater breadth and depth of collaboration with the Business, Climate, and Environment Lab, the Wharton Risk Center that hosts the Lab, and the other alumni clubs for topic and region-specific programs.
  • Access to Wharton talent: Expanding opportunities to recruit and mentor Wharton students through greater collaboration with MBA and undergraduate student clubs and career services.

Have suggestions? We would love to hear from you. Send me a note to [email protected]. Let's set up a time to chat.
