Program Information

Demand is increasing for a trained energy workforce in Washington in an emerging clean energy economy, including growing energy efficiency, grid modernization, and energy storage industries in the state. Success in this growing field requires an understanding of the policy context of energy-related decision making. 


We want to give students knowledge and an understanding of economic, law, and public policy issues associated with the formation and analysis of energy-related policies, programs, and incentives.  

Application Requirements

Applicants will apply via the Graduate School. Admission to the certificate is based on available space with first preference given to students pursuing graduate studies or careers in energy policy, analysis, and planning. 

Financial Information

This certificate program is not eligible for federal student aid, but there are other funding options you may want to explore. If, however, these classes are taken in conjunction with the requirements for an MA or MS degree program, federal student aid may be applied toward your tuition costs.
