Lesson 2 Overview


Lesson 2 Overview


This Module introduces the Final Project in full detail. You will learn what is required to complete the project and place it in the context of the global energy market. The learning objectives of the course include not just exposure to the structure and performance of energy markets, but most importantly, the determination of what the structure and performance of these markets mean for the business in which you might be engaged. To create this “laboratory” where you can test out you hypothesis of viability, we need to create a “project” against which we can test certain assumptions. For this purpose, we will spend a week understanding just what is expected for the project as well as identifying some of the major parameters of the project.
