About EPRC


The 2018 Energy Policy Research Conference is returning to our hometown and will be held at the Simplot Ballroom in the Student Union Building of Boise State University.

Since 2011, the Energy Policy Research Conference has been bringing researchers together from across the country and around the globe. To date, EPRC has been held in venues including Santa Fe, NM, Denver, CO, San Francisco, CA, Portland, OR, and Boise, ID.

This year we will be adding new items to the agenda, including a special workshop on publishing in energy with Nature Energy, a Women in Energy reception, and a student poster session. Join our mailing list to get important updates about the conference.

“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.”
