Forward in Energy Forums

The Wisconsin Energy Institute's (WEI) Forward in Energy Forum brings together experts from across UW–Madison to address the many dimensions of our global transition to clean energy systems. The upcoming Forward in Energy Forum on February 24 will examine the role of federal, state, and local governments in regulating greenhouse gas emissions as well as the ways that politics and science combine to affect our approach to climate policy. This topic will serve as a framework for a discussion of how energy-related policies with multiple objectives can impact individuals and communities in Wisconsin and beyond. Register now
