The 2017 Energy Policy Research Conference – EPRC7 — was held September 7-8, 2017 in Park City, UT and was a great success! A big thank you to our Keynote Speaker, Lorenzo Kristov, our sponsors, and the fantastic presenters.

“EPI’s Energy Policy Research Conference was a uniquely exciting and vibrant experience where researchers and practitioners in diverse aspects of the energy and climate system truly ‘got down to brass tacks’ to examine critical issues for our shared energy and environmental future.”

Brent Steel, Oregon State University

“EPI’s Energy Policy research Conference is a wonderful conference for students, faculty, practitioners, and managers to network and learn about the newest energy policy issues facing the West. Our public policy students have made connections for exciting internships and energy policy related employment, including in the rapidly growing renewable sector.”

Seth Blumsack, Pennsylvania State University

“EPRC is one of the really few opportunities for people from very different backgrounds–from law, political science, engineering, economics, public policy–to get together and have real discussions about common and important issues, not only for our own professional and academic enlightenment, but also for society at large.”
