About Us

The Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs seeks to enrich the quality of energy dialogue and policy by providing an independent and nonpartisan platform for timely, balanced analysis and actionable recommendations to address today’s most pressing energy challenges. The Center convenes energy leaders, produces policy-relevant, accessible research and trains students to become the next generation of energy scholars, executives and policymakers. Based at one of the world’s great research universities, the Center leverages its location in New York City, proximity to nancial markets, business and policymakers, and Columbia’s world-class faculty and global reach. Columbia University is Where the World Connects for Energy Policy.
