290 Strategic Innovations for Energy Efficiency

This course examines energy efficiency as a strategic solution to corporate financial, competitive, and sustainability goals. The course covers three topics: 1. energy fundamentals for non-experts, 2. corporate strategies for reducing energy consumption, and 3. energy efficiency as a new market opportunity. Although there will be some technical materials this is a strategy course and does not presume expertise in energy nor the intention of entering the energy industry.

Rather, we will focus on energy as a critical business input-much like financial inputs-to examine how efficiency strategies can manage this resource wisely to meet corporate goals.
