Congratulations to our winner: Stephen Jarvis, Energy & Resources Group and Energy Institute at Haas, University of California Berkeley, for his paper "The economic costs of NIMBYism: Evidence from renewable energy projects".
In spite of a delay of the annual USAEE conference this year due to COVID19, young energy economics professionals can showcase their research by participating in a research video cast and a best paper award competition.
USAEE invites young professionals (35 years and younger at the time of submission) to submit abstracts for the video cast and best paper award competition. We invite young professionals working in academia, industry, government, and other organizations to participate in the events. The top 8-12 abstracts will be invited to record a 12 minute research video for each paper. 3-4 finalists will be selected (out of those whose abstracts are selected for the video cast) to submit their full papers and present their research live at a webinar with judges and audience at 10 am ET on October 5th, 2020. All 8-12 research videos will be broadcast and available through USAEE networks on 10 am ET October 2nd, 2020. Please note the following instructions and deadlines.
To be eligible for consideration, the applicant must:
be a young professional (35 years and younger at the time of abstract submission);
The concept development, the research described in the abstract and paper, and the writing of the paper must be primarily the work of the young professional or equal contribution of all authors, and cannot have previously won a prize at an IAEE affiliated conference.
Students should submit their papers to the USAEE student events including student paper competition and Ph.D Day, instead of the young professional events.
