ESET 491

As the need worldwide for energy conservation and alternative (low carbon emissions) energy production methods increases, governments are taking increasingly interventionist roles in fostering and steering energy conservation and renewable energy implementation. ESET students must become aware of the type of involvement government and regulatory agencies have in the energy field, and the results that such influence creates.

In this course the student will be introduced to the particular regulations and policies that apply to energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, mostly from a Canadian perspective, although the international situation will also be explored.

We will also investigate the evolving and broad area of government incentive programs for energy conservation, renewable energy use, and greenhouse gas emission reduction.
