What are the “green” implications of renewable-energy policies? Consider investment- and market-based factors in determining these policies and their success at the next Climate-Sustainability Lecture Series talk, hosted by the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences.
“An Investor Perspective on Renewable Energy”
Climate-Sustainability Lecture Series
Felix Mormann, J.S.D. (University of Miami/Stanford University)
Wednesday, Jan. 22
Mailman-Hollywood Building | Second Floor Auditorium
About the Talk
Mormann will present an investor-oriented framework for the evaluation and design of renewable energy polices. To date, policies to encourage the deployment of renewable energy tend to be judged primarily on the face value of their monetary incentives. Empirical evidence of deployment success across the globe, however, reveals enormous differences in policy performance that don’t always correlate with the respective policies’ remuneration levels. These trends point to other forces at play, rather than policy remuneration and generation cost alone.
About the Series
Hosted by the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences Division of Math, Science, and Technology, the Climate-Sustainability Lecture Series aims to increase the understanding of the science, technology, and policies relating to climate change and sustainable development. Experts in related fields from within NSU and other institutions are featured speakers. These lectures give faculty members and students the opportunity to discuss the scientific, technological, social, and policy aspects of sustainability-related issues.
