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.

Morris Adelman, CEEPR Faculty Affiliate since its Founding in 1977, Passes Away at 96

Morris Adelman


Morris Albert Adelman, a giant in the field of energy economics and a faculty member in the MIT Department of Economics for 40 years, died on May 8 at the age of 96.

Morry was instrumental in defining CEEPR’s early research agenda and was a key contributor to its workshops for many years. His work was marked by deep and thoughtful attention to all the relevant evidence, and his talks were unique cocktails of shrewd observation and delightful wit. Long after his formal retirement from MIT, Morry continued to produce insightful papers on oil and gas markets until less than a decade ago. His generous personality, warm smile, and brilliant mind will be sorely missed.
