Land Use Planning and Policy

Course ID
This course explores the institutional frameworks and interaction of different modes of energy, infrastructure, and transportation in a carbon-constrained world. Beginning with an examination of past and present energy sources, including the environmental and social impacts of conventional energy production and distribution, the course will lead students to consider the local questions of electricity generation siting for the 21st century, to deal with questions of grid security, and to evaluate the possibilities of various future modes of energy production and distribution.
