  • WEBINAR: Modeling the Energy Transition

    Panelists shared preliminary findings from their research and policy work focusing on efforts to model various aspects of the energy transition. The discussion addressed how models can help inform energy policy as well as the role of academic research in the policymaking process. Our hope is that the audience and panelists alike benefited from participating in a dialogue that brought together cutting edge modeling researchers and the government officials charged with managing the energy transition in the United States.

  • WEBINAR: Institute for Policy Integrity’s Introduction to Justice40 & the CEJST Tool

    The Institute for Policy Integrity will host a webinar to provide an overview of Justice40 and the Climate & Economic Justice Screening Tool (CEJST) developed for it. As a partner in a the coalition chosen to run EPA's Region 2 Thriving Communities Technical Assistance Center, Policy Integrity will continue to provide technical assistance, training, and related support to communities with environmental justice concerns and their partners, including through events like this.

  • WEBINAR: Critical Raw Materials, Industrial Policy, and the Energy Transition

    Co-hosted by the Institute for Policy Integrity and the European University Institute's Florence School of Regulation.

    In this webinar, participants will delve into two significant legislative initiatives on either side of the Atlantic: the United States’ Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and the European Union’s Net Zero Industry Act (NZIA) and Critical Raw Material Act (CRM Act). These initiatives hold considerable implications for their respective regions and are interconnected on a global scale due to their relevance to securing critical raw materials.

  • WEBINAR: Industrial Decarbonization Research Insights

    Panelists shared preliminary findings from their research and policy work focusing on efforts to decarbonize various industrial processes, including steel and chemicals manufacturing. The discussion addressed the technological and policy changes needed to achieve this shift as well as the role of academic research in the policymaking process. Our hope is that the audience and panelists alike benefited from participating in a dialogue that brought together cutting edge decarbonization researchers and the government officials charged with achieving decarbonization goals in the United States.

  • CONFERENCE: State-Level Pathways to Zero-Emissions Electric Grids

    States seeking to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions and transition toward a net-zero economy often center their strategies on clean electricity and widespread electrification. This conference will examine the technical and economic characteristics of a zero-emissions electric system; challenges to achieving such a system at the state level and possible policy solutions; and how states can foster zero-emissions electric systems in a just and equitable manner. The conference featured prominent experts and policymakers from leading states including New York and New Jersey, and a keynote speech from New York Public Service Commission Chair Rory Christian.

  • CONFERENCE: Accelerating the Energy Transition

    The Institute for Policy Integrity’s annual conference focused on policies and programs that can help speed the shift to a clean and equitable energy future in the United States.

  • WEBINAR: Place-Based Energy Transition Research

    Panelists shared takeaways from their place-based research on energy justice and clean energy development, including how such research can inform state and national policy-making. Panelists then reflected on the theoretical frameworks and methodological tools used in their place-based research, as well as the unique and important role of Minority Serving-Institutions (MSIs) in advancing such research. Finally, panelists described their research design strategies for ensuring that their research processes and results serve and benefit the communities they are engaging. The recording is available here.

  • WEBINAR: Energy Insecurity & Energy Transitions — Obstacles & Opportunities

    Panelists will share takeaways from their research and policy work at the nexus of energy insecurity and energy transitions. After a discussion of how to identify and measure energy insecurity, panelists will share their findings on how the energy security of low-income populations might be affected by different aspects of the energy transition. Panelists will also examine possible solutions, such as energy cost assistance programs and post-crisis opportunities. Finally, panelists will reflect on their research design strategies for ensuring that their research processes and results serve and benefit the communities they are engaging. The recording is available here.

  • WEBINAR: Tribal Energy Transitions — Impacts, Opportunities, and Research Ethics

    In this webinar, panelists will share preliminary findings from their research and policy work, focusing on both the local economic impacts energy transitions have on Indigenous tribes as well as the opportunities that energy transitions might create for these communities. The discussion will address the technological and policy changes needed to make the most of these shifts. Panelists will also reflect on their research design strategies for ensuring that their processes and results serve and benefit the communities they are engaging. This webinar is part of an ongoing series highlighting energy equity research funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Stay tuned for upcoming events! The recording is available here.

  • CONFERENCE: A New Era of Climate & Energy Policy

    The climate and energy landscape has shifted dramatically with the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, the West Virginia v. EPA ruling, and other recent developments. Noted speakers from around the country discussed the state of energy policy and environmental justice in the wake of these shifts at our day-long conference during NYC Climate Week.
