Baker School: Inaugural Southeast Energy Policy Forum

The inaugural Southeast Energy Policy Forum hosted by The Baker School of Public Policy and Public Affairs at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, provides educational content and networking opportunities for private and public sector leaders as they navigate new energy markets, decarbonization trends, demand-side technologies, and transportation electrification.

The forum is ideal for leaders of private sector energy producers and consumers, public utilities, policymakers, regulators, and sustainability managers.

The new Baker School, in the legacy of its namesake, Senator Howard Baker Jr., who championed the Clean Air and Clean Water Act, is a leader in convening critical conversations in the areas of energy markets, policy, and the environment. The Energy Policy Forum offers an accelerated information-sharing platform and networking opportunity for public and private sector leaders as the Southeast moves towards a zero-carbon future.
