ONSEP 2018 Annual Workshop - Call for Papers

The Ontario Network for Sustainable Energy Policy (ONSEP) brings scholars together from a variety of disciplinary and methodological perspectives for its annual workshop focused on energy policy. This is the ninth workshop of ONSEP, a network of researchers dedicated to developing a greater understanding of the policies, technologies and strategies surrounding sustainable energy.

The workshop welcomes unpublished working papers that focus on analysis and evaluation of energy policies, with an aim of promoting understanding and discussion of effective approaches to reducing the environmental burden of the energy system. Although we especially welcome papers with a focus on Ontario, we also welcome papers that focus on the application of energy policies in other jurisdictions.

We are receptive to a wide range of perspectives and methods including but not limited to empirical research, theory development, formal theoretical modeling, law, sociology, planning, and experimental methods. Papers presented at our previous workshops have come from a variety of disciplines including political science, economics, management, law, geography, environmental studies, and engineering. Papers spanning multiple disciplines are especially encouraged.
