American Energy Society selects Mark Mills as “2016 Energy Writer of the Year”

The premier literary award for the energy sector

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--()--American Energy Society is pleased to announce that it has selected Mark Mills as the “Energy Writer of the Year.” Members of the American Energy Society first took notice of Mr. Mills in 2015 with his essay, “Shale 2.0,” a compelling discussion about the cause and context of the oil and gas revolution. Then, in 2016, Mr. Mills followed with a series of thought-provoking articles, including the favorite, Drone “Coincidenzas:” Marilyn, Reagan & North Dakota, a brilliant piece on the emerging relationship between energy and data. Mr. Mills has been a prolific writer for many years. In 2005, Why We Will Never Run Out of Energy was number one on Amazon’s science and math rankings. His work has been recognized by some of the most prestigious news outlets in the country: “must read” - New York Times; “required reading” - Wall Street Journal; “powerful, eloquent” - Publisher's Weekly, and he has even appeared on The Daily Show.

According to Eric Vettel, President of American Energy Society, “The breadth of talent that supports energy is remarkable. But what sets Mr. Mills apart is his ability to make difficult topics in energy more accessible, his extraordinary skill capturing scale, his grasp of technological innovation, and his ability to step back and provide critical context.”

To promote access to great writing by Mark Mills and others, American Energy Society is offering complimentary Premium Membership to anyone who “joins” the Society (free) in December.
