Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research
Welcome to CEEPR, the focus at MIT for research activity in energy economics since the Center's founding in the mid-1970s, and in environmental economics since the early 1990s.
CEEPR promotes rigorous and objective empirical research at MIT on issues related to energy and environmental policy to support decision-making by government and industry. The results of the research are disseminated through publications, workshops, educational programs and other public outreach activities.
Economics research at CEEPR is integrated with engineering and science in collaboration with faculty throughout MIT. The relevance and validity of the research is enhanced through cooperation with government and industry associates in countries around the globe.
The Center is jointly sponsored by:
- MIT's Sloan School of Management
- The Department of Economics
- MIT Energy Initiative
In turn, CEEPR is one of the two MIT research centers sponsoring:
- The Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change
