Their core research discipline is economics, within a framework that encourages collaboration between experts from different academic traditions, drawing on insights from engineering, political science and law.
Through the Energy Policy Research Group’s publications, and via its Energy Policy Forum (EPF), the group offers rigorous independent research output that informs public and private sector decision making in the electricity and energy industry.
The Energy Policy Forum is supported by stakeholder membership (business and policy associates), leveraging its research funding, extending its international sphere of influence and enhancing its ability to respond to important research questions as they arise.
