"My series, Energy Insights, will primarily focus on energy and this will be, more or less, a learning blog. The blog will offer some of my own views, as well as the views of some of the participants from the Energy Management and Innovation Center at McCombs. I will also raise questions in the hopes of receiving answers, insights and opinions from our participants. Since my own expertise is in finance, much of the initial focus will be on issues that relate to hedging, financing, derivative markets, and the financial evaluation of alternative energy sources. As my knowledge of these issues expand, I would also like to explore issues that relate more broadly to innovation and the role of public financing in this sector."
