Energy Regulation and the Environment



2019 Summer Online - Term 2

About This Class

This course builds on the course, Energy Law and Policy in a Carbon-Constrained World.  The course exposes students to the legal, economic, and structural issues involved in both energy regulation and energy markets, focusing on electricity.  The course examines the evolution, theory, and techniques of the monopoly regulation.  Students learn how utilities are regulated.  We examine rate setting, rate design and regulatory alternatives to traditional rates such as performance-based rates.  The course then examines evolving competitive, market-based alternatives.

Approved for JD credit.
