Stanford Environmental and Energy Policy Analysis Center (SEEPAC)

Lawrence H. Goulder, Director
Charles D. Kolstad, Senior Fellow

SIEPR and the Precourt Institute for Energy at Stanford have launched a new center that will foster research on public policies that address pressing environmental and energy issues. SEEPAC, directed by Lawrence Goulder, will enlist faculty and students to seek innovative and effective policies to deal with a range of issues, including climate change, local air pollution, vulnerability to oil supply disruptions, and transitions to renewable energy resources. SEEPAC’s policy analysts will work closely with engineers and natural scientists as it examines policy efforts at all levels: international, national, and regional.
