2018 - Issue 1

2018 marks the 10th Anniversary of the National Surveys on Energy and Environment (NSEE), a partnership between CLOSUP and the Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion. Earlier this year, we released the first of a series of reports showcasing the breadth and depth of topics covered over the 10 year history of the survey.  CLOSUP researchers have also been active in state and local policy engagement surrounding energy issues.  You can read more about these activities below, and also see links to other research and news from CLOSUP's Energy and Environmental Policy Initiative
