The Climate and Energy Policy Laboratory (CEPL) supports the educational and research missions of Georgia Tech's School of Public Policy by administering both the Certificate program and the Master of Sustainable Energy and Environmental Management (MSEEM) degree, and conducting research on:  local, national, and global energy transitions; carbon drawdown opportunities in Georgia and beyond;  smart grids, cities and the intersection of data sciences, behavioral research, and public policy;  clean energy financing and market-based policies;  and distributed energy resources - energy efficiency, electric vehicles, rooftop solar, and more.

Our graduates are positioned for leadership careers that address sustainable energy challenges in various areas of professional life, including government agencies, universities, non-governmental organizations, business, and industry. Our policy and modeling interests span the triad of mitigation, adaptation, and geo-engineering, while also including issues of equity, employment, and other impacts of technologies and policies.
