We will discuss recent applications of gauge-gravity duality and hydrodynamics to strongly correlated systems far from equilibrium. In particular, we will argue that long-time energy transport in quantum critical systems occurs via a universal steady-state for any spatial dimensionality [1]. This is described by a Lorentz boosted thermal state. We determine the transport properties of this emergent steady state, including the average energy flow and its fluctuations.
