This course examines the economics of markets for various energy sources (such as oil, coal, natural gas, and electricity), and their interactions with each other and with the rest of the economy. It will cover a variety of theoretical and empirical topics related to energy demand, energy supply, energy prices, environmental consequences of energy consumption and production, and various public policies affecting energy demand, supply, prices, and environmental effects from regional, national, and global perspectives.
Students are expected to participate in lecture and sections.
No text book required. All the documents and especially the compulsory readings will be posted on C-Tools.
