Energy And Environmental Policy
The Energy and Environmental Policy Research Division conducts high quality and interdisciplinary research on energy and environmental policy issues, supporting improved decision-making and better outcomes for the environment and society. Our expert team is active in both the academic and policy space, leading to outputs that translate leading academic research into practical and actionable policy solutions. New faculty hires and legacy talent contribute to a stream of publications that position the School of Public Policy as an authoritative voice on topics ranging from carbon pricing, hydrogen, and coal mining in Alberta, to pipeline, electricity market, gas pump, and oil pricing issues.
The current research foci are emissions and climate policy, industrial policy and innovation, electricity markets, the energy transition, and emergent issues such as energy poverty.
We partner with a variety of organizations to co-create rigorous and relevant public policy knowledge. If you are interested in discussing potential partnerships, please reach out.
