Energy & Environment

The energy and environment track highlights the assessment of sustainable improvements to electricity generation and distribution as well as our impact on the environment through analytic tools and methods. Courses will introduce methods to evaluate the life-cycle cost of a product, service, or process, yielding its net effect on the environment. We cover the relevant policy issues, such as trade-and-cap emission rules, and social trends that are intimately tied with our scenario projections of the future as well as the economic impact of environmental regulations.
