The Energy Policy and Innovation Center at Georgia Tech was launched in the Fall of 2016 to conduct research, provide information, and coordinate related activities with leaders and innovators in the energy industry. By partnering with a variety of individuals and organizations, such as scientists, researchers, utility companies, and nonprofits, the Center will explore the intersection of policy and technology and draw upon the extensive expertise in the Southeast.
Attended by approximately 200 energy-industry professionals, the INTERSECT Conference provided information on national energy challenges, perspectives on approaches to deploying clean, reliable and affordable power in the U.S. with an emphasis on unique regional challenges and methods to expand industry innovation.

The EPICenter also announced its first request for proposals for researchers within the Georgia Tech community individually or in collaboration with public and private entities within their Southeastern U.S. networks. In keeping with the operative scope for the Center, these entities can include universities, national labs, think tanks, NGO’s, or other research centers.
