This unit begins by addressing the issues associated with future energy demand, supply, and prices. For example, how OPEC members determine production quota for themselves? How peak and off-peak electricity prices are determined? What are the consequences of fossil fuel consumption and challenges for renewable industries? The unit then progresses to look more generally at the use of resources as economies develop, by addressing questions such as: How market internalize the externalities? Is our resource use sustainable? What impact does resource use have on future generations?
Hurdle requirement: Achieve at least 50% of the marks available on the end-of-unit assessment task to evidence a minimum proficiency in the aligned discipline learning outcomes included in this unit.
