At EPIC, we’re committed to fostering and supporting groundbreaking research on the world’s toughest energy and climate challenges. But we also recognize the need for policymakers, influencers and the public to have a direct connection to our research findings and latest thinking on the issues of the day.
So last month, EPIC secured a new partnership with Forbes.com, where you can now access the latest energy insights from our faculty, post-docs and staff. You can find our first several posts below. I hope you will take the time to explore them, and please engage by visiting our EPIC page on Forbes and sending us comments. Also follow us on Twitter where we’ll be sure to promote our Forbes posts.
