Course Description:

This course focuses primarily on the regulation and design of electric and natural gas systems. The course exams both the traditional monopoly model of regulation and evolving competitive alternatives.

Because electricity and natural gas policies cannot be fully examined without an understanding of the mechanics of rate regulation, the first part of this course will provide a basic foundation in the economic, legal, and financial aspects of energy regulation, including energy resource planning for both traditional and renewable generation. The second part will address major U.S. energy legislation since World War II, including deregulation of the natural gas industry, deregulation and restructuring of the electric utility industry and the role of rate design on energy efficiency and conservation.

COURSE REQUIREMENT: Examination and class participation
