SEST-691 Decision Making in Energy Security Policy
Spring for 2016-2017
Decision Making in Energy Security Policy is an examination of energy policy, energy security policy, how the energy system works and the levers available to policy makers, and the impacts of those policies on Energy Security. U.S. Energy Policy, as well as energy policy of other countries, are typically based around three competing national goals: national security, economic prosperity, and environmental protection. How decision-makers weigh each of these national goals and make policy decisions based on them, will be a continuous focus of this course. We will look at specific issues such as international oil markets, the growth of renewable and clean energy, electricity markets, the rise of shale oil and gas, cyber and physical security, as well as a variety international issues. The course will be taught in an interactive, discussion format, with group debates and projects. The initial syllabus will be updated and issued prior to the course.
