SEST 678 - Energy Tech & Security Impact
We are seeing one of the most dynamic periods of change in the energy sector in history.  New technologies are making more energy sources available, at lower prices, than ever before.   Following an overview of the foundations of modern energy markets and international industrial-scale energy development, the course will consider some of the most important technological changes occurring in the international energy landscape and their impact on national and regional security issues.  Emerging technologies will also be considered and evaluated.  Course readings will look at technological advances in both conventional energy sources (i.e., hydraulic fracturing) and in renewable energy sources (i.e., utility scale solar plants).    The focus will be on how these technological changes may impact the international energy landscape in the future and the possible impact on national and regional security decisions.
