Lord Stern wins prize for greatest contribution to British energy economics in last decade

Lord SternProfessor Lord Stern of Brentford, Chair of the ESRC Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy and the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at LSE, has received a prize from the British Institute of Energy Economics (BIEE) for the greatest contribution to British energy economics over the last ten years.

Members of the BIEE were invited to nominate the individual whom they believe has made the greatest contribution to British energy economics during the last decade. The committee was unanimous in recommending that Lord Stern should receive the prize. It was noted that his 2006 Review of the Economics of Climate Change has been the most influential single piece of energy economics published over the last decade, with important implications for both government policy and company strategies.

Lord Stern said: “It’s a tremendous honour to be given this award by the British Institute of Energy Economics. The Institute has played a leading role in public discussion of issues around energy and the economics of energy for a very long time. Indeed I think it has defined in many ways what a serious discussion on those issues should be.”
