Center for Energy, Transportation, and Environmental Policy (CETEP)
CETEP is an interdisciplinary network of scholars and partners that extends across the University of Tennessee, to every level of government, the nonprofit sector, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), and industry representatives. We build on the legacy of Senator Howard H. Baker Jr.’s work in the areas of energy and environmental policy, studying the interaction of energy, transportation, and the environment to develop economically sound policies that improve quality of life for citizens in Tennessee, the U.S., and around the world.
Mission: To address critical energy and environmental challenges by creating policy relevant research and educational opportunities that integrate natural, physical, and social science.
Vision: Sustainable energy, healthy environments and prosperous communities.
