Energy and Climate Finance

Energy and Climate Finance

spring term 2014
1 January 2014 to 31 May 2015
Washington, DC
United States

The course Energy and Climate Finance introduces students to environmental markets and the policies that create them, focusing mainly on emissions trading systems (ETS) to mitigate climate change. The course also provides an introduction to attributes of the financial sector through its analysis of markets for environmental commodities. Ecologic Fellow Elizabeth Zelljadt has taught this course in spring 2014.

Students learn the economic theory behind market-based environmental policy instruments such as tradable renewable energy credits, carbon offsets, and water rights in a semester of lectures featuring presentations from practitioners including state and federal government, private companies subject to market-based emissions regulation, commodity brokers and representatives from international institutions.

The next session of this course will be offered in spring 2016.
