One of the core goals of CLOSUP's Energy and Environmental Policy Initiative (EEPI) is to inform policy-relevant discussions among policymakers and other stakeholders with new research findings. In addition to publications and events, EEPI research findings have been presented at conferences and in the classroom. These presentations are available as PDFs below and can be printed in landscape orientation. Please note, many of these files are upwards of 20 MB in size and may require several minutes to download over slower connections.
