Overview

The policy institution for global energy thought leadership

The Center on Global Energy Policy (CGEP) at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs develops evidence-based research to help address the world’s most challenging energy and climate problems through research, education, and dialogue. We accomplish this mission by: producing best-in-class research, providing a global platform to communicate, and training tomorrow’s leaders and communicators.

We provide timely, actionable, independent analysis on the most pressing energy and climate challenges we face.

We bridge the gap between academia and policy to support a global transition to decarbonize our energy system.
