IEW 2017: Papers and Slides

Researchers and practitioners in developed, and developing, countries were invited to submit original papers with new and innovative results on scientific or practical experiences on the economics of energy and climate change. As is customary for the IEW, papers were to be quantitative and rigorous. A (non-exclusive) list of potential conference topics were identified. 
Based on accepted abstracts, a non-exclusive list will soon be announced and will be available online.
 
The Abstracts to be presented during the parallel sessions are now available as follows:
