Thanks to a gift from David and Joy Peyton to UVA's Cooper Center, two Batten School students are contributing vital research to help Virginia transition to cleaner energy.

Christine Mahoney

Batten professor Christine Mahoney and her team secured a $1.5 million grant to study renewable energy and resilience in Appalachia, building on the Batten School’s growing Tadler Program on Impact Investing in Appalachia. 

Larry Terry

Larry D. Terry II, executive director of the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service and faculty member at the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy, has been selected as the vice president for outreach at Penn State University. 


As part of the Virginia Clean Energy Summit on Tuesday, Batten professor William Shobe outlined how it is feasible for Virginia to “decarbonize” the state’s economy by 2050.


Upon realizing the vast number of students who were suddenly losing summer jobs and internships, the Cooper Center leapt into action. Batten Professor Bill Shobe and his team made the decision to take on as many interns for its Virginia Clean Energy Project as it could possibly handle.


On Tuesday afternoon, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam appointed Larry Terry – who holds an appointment in UVA’s Frank Batten School of Leadership & Public Policy – to a two-year term on the Virginia State Crime Commission.

William Shobe

William Shobe is a professor of public policy at the Batten School and the Director of the Center for Economic and Policy Studies at UVA’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service. Shobe's current research includes emission market and auction design, environmental federalism, improved economic modeling of Virginia’s economy, state economic development incentives and state economic forecasting.
