Adjunct Professor and Environmental Economist Catherine Keske to Co-Author Energy Pricing Study for Colorado Governor's Energy Office

Dr. Catherine Keske, an adjunct professor at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law and an assistant professor of soil and crop sciences at Colorado State University, will co-author a major new study, Designing a Technology-Neutral Benefit-Pricing Policy for the Electric Power Sector in Colorado.

Dr. Keske, who teaches Environmental Economics and Energy, Economics and Policy at the College of Law, will be part of a team of researchers considering how concepts such as water consumption, climate change, and air pollution should be factored into the price of energy.

"We are at a crossroads with energy consumption, where environmental quality must also be factored in to have a sustainable economy," Dr. Keske told CSU Today. "As the human population grows, there is an increasing need for energy. We must ensure that energy is available to everyone while curtailing negative impacts to our environment."
