The goal of this course is to explore policy making and policy implementation in the context of energy technologies. Using case studies we will reveal the multidimensionality and tensions implicit in policy debates. We will assemble a toolbox that enables us to innovate, assess, and promote policy options. Focus will be placed on policy solutions such as common pool resource management, community-based social marketing, civic dialogue, and analytic-deliberation. Also offered as ENVS 459.
