While the debate over global warming continues, there's increasing recognition around the world to reduce our collective carbon footprint. Yet disagreement remains over the benefits of renewable energies versus traditional sources like coal, natural gas and oil. Business leaders, policy makers and the general public generally seek lower carbon energy sources but struggle to accurately determine their cost effectiveness.
This course will examine the economics of competing power sources from an investor perspective, evaluating alternative technologies that have vastly different developmental and ongoing costs.
