ENRGYENV 625 - Energy, Markets and Innovation

Course Description

This course will use current trends and transformations taking place in energy resources, technologies, services, markets and consumer behavior to provide students with a cost-centered, systems framework for analyzing emerging opportunities in the global energy industry. The specific trends/transformations that will be explored include nuclear and wind power generation, shale gas and shale oil, automotive innovations, and ongoing efforts to reduce CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels. Changes in these areas will be analyzed in terms of fuel prices, technology costs, project evaluation, energy markets, and energy

This course complements “Energy & Environment”. While “Energy, Markets and Innovation” is designed to follow “Energy & Environment”, students do not need to take the latter course, and, if they are so inclined, can even take “Energy & Environment” after this course.
