Energy Industry Fundamentals

The Duke Fuqua School of Business hosted the Energy Industry Fundamentals, a 2-day course on the overview of the energy industry. Topics ranged from oil and gas to electricity and had speakers ranging from Lincoln Pratson to Eric Toone. I shared a whirlwind overview of electric power markets and a short history of (de)regulation in the U.S. I also discussed basic electric power engineering concepts including the generation, transmission, and distribution infrastructure, as well as the tradeoffs between HVAC and HVDC transmission, reactive power compensation, and energy storage technologies.
