Severin Borenstein is all about the energy
Severin Borenstein is a professor of Business and Public Policy at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business and the director of the Energy Institute at Haas. One of California’s premier experts on energy policy, his research focuses on business competition, strategy, and regulation in the airline industry, the oil and gas industries, electricity markets, and the economics of renewable energy. In this week’s podcast, Borenstein talks about the link between California’s energy policy and its economic growth; the state’s oversize role in setting and exporting global energy policy; innovation and climate policy; and why banning new gas stations is a really bad idea.
