About the Lecture: With the Trump administration’s proposed financial relief of the coal and nuclear industries in the name of national security, energy economics has re-emerged as a topic for national debate. So far, much of this discussion has been cast as a contest between market economics and national security. What might the vulnerabilities of America’s electrical system be? What are driving energy economic trends both nuclear and non-nuclear? These questions and more will be addressed at this lecture.
