Energy Markets, Reliability, Safety, and Security

The use of energy is intimately tied to energy demand, government regulation and incentives, future projections, and economic competition. An EaSE specialization in Energy Markets provides the student with quantitative methods by which a portfolio of energy sources can be optimized.
