Friday Forums


IPU Friday Forums feature leading researchers working on contemporary issues of utility policy. We will share links to their working and published papers in advance. Brief presentations will be followed by discussant comments and roundtable dialog with the attendees. Most forums will be scheduled midday on Fridays on the Zoom platform, and last for about an hour. Some events in this series will be hosted by collaborative centers or organizations. Please check the schedule for continuous updates and join us for a Friday Forum soon!
