The Harvard Environmental Economics Program (HEEP) and the Enel Foundation are collaborating on a project intended to advance understanding of important challenges in energy, environmental, and natural resource policy. This website is intended to serve as a resource for individuals from around the globe participating in this project. Among these participants are energy regulators, other policy makers, and stakeholders in business. HEEP welcomes feedback on the site and inquiries concerning materials that may not currently be posted. For those participating in a specific upcoming workshop, please see materials relevant to that workshop under the “Workshops” menu item at the top of the page.
