2021 Northeast Workshop on Energy Policy and Environmental Economics

The Northeast Workshop on Energy Policy and Environmental Economics will meet virtually on Monday and Tuesday, June 14 – 15, 2021, hosted by the Kleinman Center for Energy Policy and co-sponsored with the Business, Climate and Environment Lab at the Wharton Risk Center.

Our goal is to assemble a set of papers on a variety of topics, reflecting the latest advances in energy and environmental economics. We are particularly interested in papers that examine key policy-oriented energy and environmental issues through these lenses:

  • public economics
  • development economics
  • industrial organization
  • macroeconomics

The workshop will feature two types of plenary sessions:

  • 45-minute sessions—talk, discussant, and audience discussion
  • 25-minute sessions—talk and audience discussion

Graduate students will also share short presentations (5 minutes), sketching out an area of current research and highlighting central findings.

This year’s workshop is organized by Arthur van Benthem of Penn, Joe Aldy of Harvard, Geoffrey Heal of Columbia, Erin Mansur of Dartmouth, and Kenneth Gillingham of Yale. It is the latest in a series of Northeast Workshops, the most recent were held at Harvard, Columbia, Dartmouth, Yale, and Cornell.
