However, there is limited understanding of how these three aspects of the transition – technology, economics, and policy – can work together to hasten the transition. To that end, the University of San Francisco is offering a new, interdisciplinary graduate degreethat focuses on the skills and knowledge needed to work in the rapidly-changing energy economy. The program includes courses on renewable energy technologies, power systems and the grid, renewable energy economics and finance, electricity markets, and energy policy. The curriculum was developed with the help of advisors from government agencies (CAISO and California PUC), PG&E, LBNL, the Nature Conservancy, and the private sector (MCE, SunPower, STEM, Canadian Solar among others).
