Each year, CEEPR hosts two Energy and Environmental Policy Research Workshops in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Partnering with the Energy Policy Research Group (EPRG) at the University of Cambridge, CEEPR also convenes an annual International Energy Policy Conference at varying locations outside the US.

Attendance at these events is by invitation only, and the proceedings are subject to Chatham House rules.

An established format and the continuity of participation from CEEPR Associates deepen the quality of the discussion and afford our faculty and research affiliates insights that help shape the ongoing research agenda and sustain its relevance. CEEPR Associates have access to presentation slides and video recordings from past meetings. The most recent past workshop is highlighted below, and older events are archived beneath it. Clicking on a past event will open the tab with the available workshop materials.
