We're excited to announce that EPI's 4th Annual Energy Policy Research Conference (EPRC)* will be held in San Francisco, California! Formerly known as the Western Energy Policy Research Conference, EPRC is the premier energy policy research conference held in the Western United States.  The conference will take place September 4-5, 2014 and The Westin San Francisco Market Street will host the event.

EPI is thrilled to welcome Dr. Steven Chu as the Keynote Speaker for the event! Dr. Chu recently returned to Stanford after serving as the 12th U.S. Secretary of Energy under President Obama's administration. He is the co-recipient of the Nobel Prize for Physics (1997), and directed the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory from 2004-2009. Chu is the holder of 10 patents, the author of over 250 scientific papers, and the recipient of 23 honorary degrees.

New in 2014 - EPI Partners with The Electricity Journal!

Select papers from the conference will be solicited for inclusion in a special symposium issue of The Electricity Journal to be published following the event.

This conference is for you if you are seeking to present or discuss energy policy research with participants and panelists from academia, think-tanks and research institutes, NGOs, national laboratories, industry, and government.

Presenters are required to submit papers and discuss their research to advance the state-of-the-art, analyze policies, and foster research collaborations dealing with an increasingly carbon-constrained economy and regulatory environment.
