Very good course if you like to have the big picture

This is a course that really helps to understand energy system and issues in the US. I recommend to those interested in US energy market.

very good course regarding the US energy, interesting for someone not familiar with shale gas, unconventional gas, etc.

An outstanding experience it was . i really enjoyed the entire course and learned the elementary knowledge about energy .Overall it was great.
