It reviews local, state, and federal laws and policies that promote (and impede) such sources, and considers emerging distributed generation models. Turning to technology-specific evaluations, it surveys the range of emerging technologies and looks in depth into some specific models of high potential or value, concluding with consideration of proposed strategies for reducing greenhouse gases.

All of those who enroll are expected to have completed Law 270.6 Energy Regulation and the Environment, or a comparable graduate course elsewhere on campus.
