Energy Policy

Energy Policy

Energy policy research at Berkeley Lab covers a wide range of topics, from the development of policy strategies to encourage the deployment of renewable energy resources and end-use energy forecasting, to research on energy efficiency standards and codes, and electric system planning.

Researchers also provide technical assistance to help federal, state and local government agencies in the United States, and throughout the world, develop long-term strategies, policies and programs to encourage energy-efficiency in all sectors and industries.

Research is conducted by four ETA groups: the China Energy Group, the Electricity Markets and Policy Group, the Energy Efficiency Standards Group, and the International Energy Studies Group. Through analyses, modeling, economic research, market assessments, and more, they supply valuable information that stakeholders use to craft successful energy policies in diverse environments.
