This class examines the energy policy choices facing U.S. policymakers. The choices involve myriad issues, including: allowing fuel exports, regulating greenhouse gas emissions, subsidizing renewable fuels and energy efficiency investments, allowing drilling on public lands, and allocating funds for research across energy sources and technologies. Broader issues include: understanding and evaluating the justifications used to support energy policies; making policy when costs and benefits are uncertain, occur in long term, and are hard to quantify; what’s the ‘right’ price of energy; market and government failures ’ what are they and how do we address them?
