Emerging energy economics

Pick any policy issue related to an emerging energy economics topic that you think will be important in the future to policymakers.  Assume your policymaker knows little about the issue but needs to make a decision. Note who is likely to favor and oppose the decision you recommend to the policymaker and why.

(Perspective should be that of a staff member writing briefing memo for a decision maker who will be involved in making a decision on the issue. Find decision maker with specific authority,  example include but not limited to: Secretary of EPA, Member of Congress, Head of Energy Company, Head of World Bank…)

Sharply focus on narrow issue: can be small question or part of a bigger question
Convey new information: Avoid spending lots of time on common knowledge, clearly draw out interesting policy implications
