NR 507

One of my favorite electives I took for the Sustainability Dual major was NR 507, An Introduction to our Energy System and Sustainable Energy, with Clay Mitchelle. It gave me an inside look at our domestic energy system and the expanding efforts to develop our use and acceptance of sustainable energy. I also gained an understanding of the basic principles and processes of how the energy system was built, and how it has been financed and supported by this system of public utilities, as well as the opportunities, challenges, and critiques are that relate to an increase focus on a sustainable energy future. I personally found this class very interesting because I had not known much about the energy system as a whole and the legislation that goes into adopting certain types of energy.
