The Energy Institute works closely with researchers throughout the UT Austin campus to raise awareness of important energy issues and enhance overall energy literacy by connecting journalists who cover energy and environmental issues with experts conducting world-class research on a range of energy issues and fields of study.
Each fall, the Energy Institute hosts a two-day workshop that offers journalists who regularly cover energy and environmental issues direct access to some of the world’s leading energy experts. The event, supported by the University’s School of Journalism, McCombs School of Business, School of Law, features a series of presentations from faculty members and other energy researchers on a wide range topical of issues.
Energy Journalism Fellowship
The UT Energy Journalism Fellowship provides a journalist who regularly covers energy and environmental topics a yearlong hiatus from the grind of daily deadlines to pursue a long-form energy-themed writing project. The fellowship, sponsored by the Energy Institute and the School of Law, also provides the recipient direct access to UT Austin’s 300+ renowned energy experts, libraries, and other facilities.
