Previous Projects: Consulting Clients

For 2013-2014 the Center for International Studies is organizing a year-long program titled, Global Energies: A Public Inquiry into the Ecology, Science and Politics of Energy in the 21st Century. The rise of biofuels and shale gas and oil have created ripple effects in global energy markets but have also fundamentally altered natural and social environments around the world. In conjunction with this series, the Green Economics Group will work with the Environment, Agriculture and Food Working Group to form a “Global Energies” team. In the autumn, the featured issue will be fracking and its effects on the environment and energy markets; in winter quarter, focus turns to biofuels; and spring offers viewpoints on alternative energy and a world beyond fossil fuels.

The Office of Sustainability at the University of Chicago is working with campus and community partners to create a culture of sustainability on campus by using a data-driven yet relationship-based approach to integrating sustainable behaviors and infrastructure across campus. The Green Economics Group will work with the Office of Sustainability to assess student conceptions of social media and the costs of environmentally friendly habits in dorms utilizing demographic data sets from primary research and analysis.

GEG is working with the Metropolitan Planning Council on stormwater and green infrastructure incentives, together with the EAF team. The project involves the research to create a stormwater incentives decision-making tool for communities looking to create new green infrastructure programs for private property owners. There is a good deal of attention on this issue in the City and the region and ample opportunities for social media updates.

GEG will coordinate with the Green Chicago Restaurant Coalition on a variety of possible opportunities that include working with restaurants directly to improve sustainability and environmental impact, leading to green certification. GEG could also potentially work with the GCRC partners (restaurant groups, food suppliers, farmers, policy makers) on environmental data analysis and recommendations.
