CGEP Announces Cohort for 2023 Energy Journalism Fellows

The Center on Global Energy Policy (CGEP) at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs today announced this year’s cohort of journalists selected for the 2023 Energy Journalism Fellows program, which will be held on Columbia University’s campus in New York City from June 20-23, 2023. 

Taught by CGEP Scholars, Columbia faculty, and other academic, industry, and government experts, the Energy Journalism Fellows program (EJF), formerly known as the Energy Journalism Initiative, offers journalists the opportunity to learn about the intersecting disciplines shaping the global energy sector, including finance and markets, climate change, science and technology, policy, and geopolitics. 

“As CGEP celebrates its 10-year anniversary, we’re thrilled to welcome this cohort of Energy Journalism Fellows back on Columbia’s campus for the first time in three years,” said Jason Bordoff, Founding Director, Center on Global Energy Policy. “To address the world’s most pressing energy and climate challenges, it is critical that policymakers, business leaders, and citizens have access to fact-based and rigorous reporting that helps explain complex scientific and policy concepts. The program is a unique and instrumental opportunity to give journalists access to the world’s leading climate and energy experts.” 

“Since its inception in 2017, the Energy Journalism Fellows program has enrolled 140 journalists from the U.S. and around the world,” said Bill Loveless, Director of the Energy Journalism Fellows program, Center on Global Energy Policy. “We see this program as an important opportunity for new and seasoned journalists to get access to world class educational resources and experts to help them better understand a wide variety of technical topics associated with the energy transition and climate change.”
