Course Description:

Energy regulation decisions and technologies are strongly influenced by economics and federal and state politics. The policy choices are particularly important with respect to electricity and natural gas regulation. The energy use of individual countries and of the global system as a whole reflect the accumulation of decades of policy choices and have significant impacts on local, regional and global economies and the environment.

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 political aspects of energy regulation, renewable energy, and energy efficiency. The second part will address major U.S. energy legislation since World War II and any pending climate change or related legislation.

COURSE REQUIREMENT: Examination and class participation
