Energy Management and Policy (ENMG)

ENMG 502 Introduction to Energy Policy

Energy, especially in the context of economic development and environmental sustainability, presents a career-defining challenge to many disciplines and professions. This course, therefore, is intended to provide an organzing foundation for courses across the University in Law, Wharton, Design, SAS, and SEAS. This course provides an advanced introduction to the design and delivery of energy policy at various levels of government in the U.S. and elsewhere. We will take a deep look at policies that regulate oil and gas industry, nuclear, green energy, and electricity markets. This will involve looking at past, present, and proposed policy mechanisms with a special consideration of how issues of climate change and sustainability affect those policies and policy proposals.
