Purpose: The purpose of this discussion is to raise your level of awareness and bridge our in-class lessons with the “real world.”
- Why do you think there is a such a large discrepancy between the amount of green energy purchased and used?
- In your projections, did you have an optimistic, neutral, or pessimistic take on what the company will do in terms of green energy? What is your rationale for this view?
- Do you think it is likely that companies will close the gap between the green energy that they purchase and the green energy that they use?
- Are companies in some industries are more likely to close the gap than companies in other industries? If so, which industries and why? If not, why not?
- Are there incentives (financial or otherwise) for companies to use non-renewable energy? Is there a way to change the incentive structure so that companies use more green energy?
