The Energy Policy Institute is an integral part of the Center for Advanced Energy Studies (CAES), which is a public/private partnership between the Idaho National Laboratory, Boise State University, the University of Idaho, and Idaho State University. EPI provides robust and timely research that meets the challenges of an increasingly carbon-constrained economy, which include the need for energy and environmental security, as well as sustainable economic development.
