Energy Management and Policy (EMAP)
EMAP is an interdisciplinary group whose research addresses academics as well as policy makers in business and government. In our work, "energy management" includes the assurance of adequate supplies, more efficient use of energy, the balancing of energy/environmental demands, and the development of new sources of energy. "Energy policy" includes public policy, business strategy, and the coordination of the two. The EMAP Group is organized around five major centers and programs on the University of Houston campus:

Global Energy Management Institute
Bauer College of Business
Praveen Kumar

Energy, Environment and Natural Resources Center
UH Law Center
