About the Conference

The Georgia Tech School of Economics, in conjunction with the Strategic Energy Institute and Energy Policy & Innovation Center, will host the Southeastern Workshop on Energy & Environmental Economics & Policy (SWEEEP) from Oct. 19-20, 2023. 

The goal of SWEEEP is to bring together energy and environmental economists and policy researchers from all over the Southeast to present their research, exchange ideas, and build community. The workshop focuses on economics and policy issues lying at the intersection of energy and the environment, and including topics as varied as the clean energy transition, housing and the built environment, transportation (air and auto), carbon markets, health impacts of energy systems, measuring consumer and firm behavioral responses to energy policy, and more. 

This will be the second SWEEEP workshop hosted by the School of Economics. The workshop was first held in 2019 (and was titled the Southeastern Energy & Environmental Economics Workshop, or SEEEW). The workshop was suspended in subsequent years due to the pandemic.

This year's workshop brings together experts and researchers to delve into a wide range of critical topics in the field of energy and environmental economics. Over the two-day event, participants will engage in discussions surrounding various topics like pollution, emissions, regulation, compliance, and renewable energy supply, showcasing the diverse array of issues addressed by researchers in the field. This interdisciplinary gathering promises to provide valuable insights into the complex interactions between energy, the environment, and economics.
