Climate Change and Energy Policy

 

Area Leader: Professor Laura Diaz Anadon

 

Several members of C-EENRG pursue research agendas on different aspects of climate change and energy policy, including i) clean technology innovation; ii) public policy and institutions in the climate and energy space; and iii) the coupling of food, water and energy systems and its implications for policy-making.

Some of the research initiatives led by C-EENRG members in this area include:
