Assistant Professor of the La Follette School of Public Affairs
Greg Nemet's research and teaching focus on improving understanding of the environmental, social, economic, and technical dynamics of the global energy system. More generally, he focuses on understanding how to expand access to energy services while reducing environmental impacts. A central focus of his research involves empirical analysis of the process of innovation and technological change. He is particularly interested in how the outcomes of this line of research can inform public policy related to improvements in low-carbon energy technologies. Nemet teaches courses in energy systems analysis, governance of global energy problems, and international environmental policy.
