USAEE Chapters

The Three Rivers Chapter of the United States Association for Energy Economics is committed to expanding the reach of energy information in both the private and public sectors in the State of Pennsylvania, and surrounding area.

Its goals are to:

  • provide for the mutual association of persons interested in energy economics in order to create a forum for professional discussion
  • provide a means of professional communication and exchange of experience and ideas among persons interested in energy economics from within Pittsburgh and the surrounding area

Anyone interested in the array of issues affecting energy economics--including theory, markets, public policy, and the environment--is invited to join and actively participate.

Our new organization brings together energy professionals to network and discuss topics related to energy and economics. We will organize and hold periodic meetings featuring keynote speakers as well as provide casual forums for professionals to meet and exchange ideas. Anyone interested in the array of topics regarding energy economics--including theory, markets, public policy, and the environment--is invited to join and actively participate.
