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.
