ENRG 140 - International Energy and Environmental Policy


Access to energy, especially low-carbon energy, impacts both the economic opportunities and environmental conditions of people around the world. The choices we make today have far reaching impacts on our children, children’s children, and potentially the entire human race. With energy markets that span continents, and an environmental problem (climate change) that requires a worldwide effort, understanding the policy options can be overwhelming. This course will provide a framework for thinking about energy usage decisions by learning about sources of energy, energy efficiency standards and economic instruments to control pollution such as cap-and-trade and carbon taxes. We will learn about these concepts in conjunction with with a brief survey of the geography, energy needs/institutions, and opportunities of nations on six continents.
