Students then apply the course concepts in a facilitated learning environment, both qualitatively and quantitatively, to real case studies drawn from industry. Topics include large-scale wind energy projects, distributed solar projects, bioenergy, energy efficiency, clean-tech commercialization, and climate change mitigation. Students will assess policy questions, evaluate economic opportunities, and develop meaningful recommendations regarding the case studies. After successfully completing this course, participants will be better equipped to evaluate policy alternatives, participate in public stakeholder processes, or make critical organizational decisions related to renewable energy.
