Membership

The Center for Energy Studies (CES) is supported by corporate and individual members who participate through the Energy Forum via workshops, research and outreach. The Energy Forum provides an opportunity for members to be involved in CES energy research and energy policy events and to meet personally with distinguished statesmen and industry leaders who shape the energy world today.
