The study of the substructure of jets at the LHC provides unique opportunities to study QCD and search for physics beyond the SM. In this talk I will discuss recent progress in improving our understanding of jet substructure using a particular observable called the energy correlators. I will highlight the remarkable theoretical and experimental properties of these observables and argue that this makes them ideally suited for bridging formal theoretical progress and practical jet substructure measurements. I will then describe progress in understanding the energy correlators in a number of different directions, including higher perturbative orders, higher point correlators, the incorporation of tracking information for experiments, and the structure of spin correlations in the OPE limit. I will also present recent measurements of these observables at the LHC, which highlight the near conformal dynamics of QCD directly in data.
