EGRS 152 Power! Energy Technologies in Context

The impacts of energy technologies on society are at once tremendously positive and enormously problematic. In this course, we investigate fossil fuel based, nuclear, and renewable options for producing energy in the transportation, electrical, and buildings energy sectors. We will examine the social, political, and environmental contexts and consequences for our energy use, including global climate change, environmental pollutants, economic development, and inequalities in access to energy and exposure to harm.
