Energy Regulation & the Environment

Course Description
This course lies at the crossroads of energy and environmental law. It exposes students to the legal, economic, structural, and environmental issues involved in energy regulation, focusing primarily on electricity, and to a lesser degree, transportation. The course will cover legal concepts important to an understanding of energy law, including both the traditional monopoly model of cost of service regulation and evolving competitive alternatives for electricity. The primary focus of this course is on the environmental impacts and legal challenges associated with different sources of energy (coal, natural gas, nuclear, renewables, oil and alternative fuels). This course examines common policy tools used to advance clean energy sources, including feed-in-tariffs, tax credits, and renewable portfolio standards. This course also exposes students to the latest approaches to managing the electric grid, including energy efficiency, demand side management, and smart grid technologies. This course does not cover traditional oil and gas law. (3 credits)
