The United States Association for Energy Economics (USAEE), in association with the International Association for Energy Economics (IAEE), has selected Anchorage as the site for its 2013 North American conference. This will be July 28-31, 2013.
The conference will assemble a diverse group of experts from private enterprise, the public sector, and academia to debate the economics and policy implications of energy production, consumption, and regulation.
As hosting chapter this presents a fabulous opportunity for us. Not only will many of the world's foremost energy economists come to Anchorage to present their work, but our chapter will have a significant role in shaping the program to include issues of both local and international interest.
Some of these areas will include:
- Regimes, Investment Risk and Government Take
- Offshore Development: Opportunities and Challenges
- Evolution of World Gas Markets
- Unconventional and Renewable Energy Resources
- Climate Change Policy
- Energy Pricing
We are in need of people to participate in developing the program and organizing the conference, in coordination with the national organization.
In addition, the conference is a fund raising event for the local chapter and national organization. We are also in need of people to support our fund raising efforts.
