Energy markets and environmental regulation have increasingly become intertwined. Professionals and executives in government and business need an understanding of one to have a complete understanding of the other.

The Energy Institute offers one- and two-day professional and executive educational programs to help practitioners understand the fundamental concepts behind energy markets and environmental regulation. The classes are taught by UC professors. All classes are interactive and student participation is encouraged.

  • Fundamentals of Electricity Regulation

  • Market Power in Electricity Markets
  • Resource Adequacy in Restructured Markets
  • Retail Pricing in Regulated Markets
  • Environmental Taxes, Caps and Intensity Standards

The Energy Institute also partners with Berkeley Executive Education to create educational experiences for corporate and government organizations that address leadership, innovation, strategy and management.
