Workshop on Energy and Environmental Research 2016

UH Manoa is particularly strong in energy, environment and resource policy, which often requires interdisciplinary research. This workshop facilitates interaction among faculty and graduate students in UHEROEconomics, Engineering, NREM, DURP, SOEST and more. We also hope to draw participation from visitors and professional economists and policy analysts around the State. Work in progress is strongly encouraged!
