Energy Regulation & the Environment

Course Description
The course exposes students to the legal, economic, and structural issues involved in both energy regulation and energy markets, focusing on electricity.  The course will cover legal concepts important to an understanding of energy law, as well as explore the options for electricity generation (coal, natural gas, nuclear, and renewable) and transmission.  The course examines both the traditional monopoly model of regulation and evolving competitive alternatives, with emphasis on the policy implications of various methods of regulation.  The course exposes students to the latest approaches to managing the electric grid, including energy resource planning, pollution management, rate design, green markets, energy efficiency, demand side management, renewable energy portfolios, climate change, and carbon management.  This course does not cover traditional oil and gas law.
