OSPSANTG 75: Chilean Energy and Climate Policy

This course will examine the design and evaluation of energy and climate policies in the context of Chile, a developing country that faces various significant environmental, economic and social challenges. The course will explore the dynamics of an effective strategy to reduce the impacts of climate change through development of an energy system that meets both global and local pollution standards, and properly addresses social, political and cultural challenges. Topics include the development of the Chilean energy industry, leading global energy trends, local and global environmental challenges associated with energy, socio-economic challenges such as energy poverty and inequality, and the current challenges Chile faces with its energy and climate policies. A field trip to a local power plant will complement the course's assigned readings and discussions.
