What Economics Really Tells Us about our Energy Future
This presentation examines the question: What will the economic recovery mean for future oil, natural gas and electricity prices and how do issues like resource scarcity, technology development, and carbon taxes impact the familiar energy demand and supply model? It will provide a primer on economic principles and a discussion of other issues that call traditional model forecasts into question.
Ken Rose, PhD
Institute of Public Utilities, Michigan State University
The Big Picture View from the Dismal Science
This presentation reviews electricity supply and demand characteristics, the resources used to generate it and how resource limits (including environmental constraints) may change our working assumptions in the electric supply industry. The demand for electricity is also considered for its unique characteristics that make changing consumer behavior difficult. Finally, resource substitutes that are emerging to generate electricity will be considered and the role they may play in the future.
Pew Center for Global Climate Change
Electricity Demand in a Low-Carbon Energy Future
This presentation includes information about the current trends that may significantly affect future electricity demand include reforms to utility regulation (e.g., decoupling), new efficiency standards, and increased and novel methods for educating consumers about their consumption and its impacts.
Giuliano Monizza, PhD
Enabling the Future Sustainable Energy System
This presentation discusses the three forces needed to enable the future sustainable energy system: 1. Technology push through R&D funding for key technologies, and funding for full scale demo projects. 2. Market pull through reliable long term investment incentives, and growth in public acceptance and awareness. 3. Dialogue and cooperation between politics, industry, and NGOs manifested as legislation at the EU and national level.
