The Master of Energy Economics (MEECON) develops and educates future leaders and strategic thinkers in the energy sector. Our program trains participants to provide insightful analysis and to inform such things as capital asset decisions, firm strategic direction and future market orientation by combining the disciplined study of market and economic principles with a deep understanding of the functioning and inter-connections of the energy industry. At the core of any discussion of these matters is the manner in which energy markets function. The inexorable link between economic activity and energy demand implies that understanding the sources of growth is critical to determining the market pull for energy resources. The economic factors that determine supply and deliverability then determine how the demand for energy services will be met. More specifically, the economics of energy supply and deliverability affect how energy resources are allocated through both space and time. Click here to learn more.
