Sponsored by the Center for Advanced Energy Studies and the Energy Policy Institute, the Western Energy Policy Research Conference (WEPRC) is the premier energy policy research conference held in the Western United States. WEPRC will take place August 25-26, 2011, in scenic Boise, Idaho. The Grove Hotel, Boise's only AAA rated 4-Diamond hotel, will host the event. Located in the heart of downtown Boise, the Grove Hotel stands amid the city's finest dining, shopping, and nightlife destinations.
WEPRC is a conference for academic and professional energy policy researchers. Presenters are required to submit papers and discuss their research to advance the state-of-the-art, analyze policies, and foster research collaborations dealing with an increasingly carbon-constrained economy and regulatory environment.
This conference is for you if you are seeking to present or discuss energy policy research with participants and panelists from academia, think-tanks and research institutes, NGOs, national laboratories, industry, and government.
Dr. Roger A. Pielke, Jr. , a faculty member at the University of Colorado's Center for Science and Technology Policy Research and a fellow at the Breakthrough Institute, will be the keynote speaker at the conference luncheon. Dr. Pielke is the author of The Climate Fix: What Scientists and Politicians Won't Tell You about Global Warming and The Honest Broker: Making Sense of Science in Policy and Politics.
