This class covers the basics of energy law in the United States and California. The course has a particular focus on our electric grid, public utilities and the regulation of various sources of generation. We will cover not just the law, but also the economic, technological, and policy context for the legal doctrine. Key topics include renewable energy, climate change concerns, energy independence and security, the price of electricity, equity in access to electricity, and changes in energy demand. Students will gain an understanding of historical and current energy use, law and policy, and the regulatory and political environment in which electric utilities and other energy companies operate.
