REDA Seminar Weighs Risks for the Electric Grid

"Just three tenths of one percent of Wisconsin homes have rooftop solar panels, yet every 83 seconds a new solar installation is built somewhere in the U.S. -- three times faster than just two years ago," reports Elisa Graffy in a recent seminar for REDA students sponsored by the Wisconsin Energy Institute. "If you see that kind of growth you pay attention," she adds, and electric utilities everywhere are doing just that.

Preparing the First Cohort of REDA Students

This fall, Ag & Applied Economics launched a professional master's degree in Resource and Energy Demand Analysis (REDA)—the first program of its kind. The 18 students in our inaugural class will develop the quantitative skills to manage and evaluate energy efficiency and resource conservation programs. REDA will prepare them for successful careers with utilities, consulting firms, regulators, and other organizations involved in protecting natural resources. There's a high demand for such specialized skills, given the growth of energy and resource-conservation programs around the world.
