CPD: Energy Economics - Keeping the Lights On
Energy Economics - Keeping the Lights On
This talk will concentrate on the economics of the energy industry and its impact on the field of engineering. The presentation will cover how energy economics have gone from focusing on the supply of electricity (in the '50s, '60s and '70s) to the demand for electricity (today), along with how deregulation has pushed the change. The presentation also will cover the confusion about how to approach supply to grid to demand.
