Agent-based modeling of consumer energy choices can aid in the design of better policies and programs, research shows

Right now, there’s an odd thing about solar in the United States (and elsewhere).

The UT Energy Symposium is a multidisciplinary platform designed to get students, faculty, and industry experts talking about the most pressing energy issues facing our world. LBJ Associate Professor Varun Rai is a leader of the symposium and was featured in Texas Exes's "The Hook" last week for his work.
