ENRGYENV 625 - Energy, Markets and Innovation
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.
