Energy Economics and Strategy - BUSI97254


The aim of the module is to explore how energy companies are responding to the need to provide secure, affordable, supplies of energy while minimising its environmental impact.  It will emphasise the role of technology in expanding the options available to us, and the way in which technological features of different energy sectors affect their business models and economic performance.


Course Leader

Energy Economics & Policy - SEF03


· To introduce students with engineering and physical science backgrounds to a selection of the key issues in energy economics and policy, emphasising how these topics must be considered closely with technology development initiatives.

· To develop a general foundation in energy economics and policy that allows students to engage effectively with the literature, so they can explore areas that it is not possible to develop within the limited time frame of the course.

· To develop skills in synthesis and critical analysis as applied to the energy literature, to a level appropriate for a beginning researcher in this area.

· To develop elementary skills in writing technical reports, that can be built on in later components of the MSc.
