Power Generation and the Environment: Choices & Economic Trade-Offs Presentations

The following presentations do not necessarily represent the views of the University of Wyoming, UW School of Energy Resources, UW Center for Energy Economics and Public Policy nor the forum steering committee. The presentations were invited as part of a public forum, and not as part of a peer-reviewed conference, and with the absence of peer review, the University cannot vouch for their accuracy.
