Best Paper Awards

ANNUAL PRIZES ARE AWARDED FOR OUTSTANDING PAPERS PUBLISHED IN THE ENERGY JOURNAL

In 1989, the IAEE’s Energy Economics Education Foundation instituted a "Best Paper" award for the paper designated as the most outstanding of the papers published in The Energy Journal the previous year. In 2005, the "Best Paper" award was renamed to "The Campbell Watkins Energy Journal Best Paper" award in recognition of Campbell Watkins' long standing support to the Association and its publications.

This prize is awarded annually to authors of the most outstanding paper published in The Energy Journal. The winners are chosen by a special IAEE committee. Past recipients of the Outstanding Paper Award are listed below.
