EFI provides its members with information, technology forums, site visits and networking opportunities for companies interested in an unbiased assessment of the commercial status of important energy processes, fuels and technologies, their commercial readiness, relative competitive position and deployment prospects. The association's forums feature authoritative and up-to-date presentations from key stakeholders in the industry about a wide range of new technologies under development worldwide, and an opportunity to participate in the informal professional network that the international non-advocacy group has sustained for more than three decades.
