Iceland’s Energy Policy: Finding the Right Path Forward – your group will meet before class to prepare for the case. (see the discussion page for details

Hi, you have to read the article regarding “Iceland’s Energy Policy: Finding the Right Path Forward” and answer the questions.
Case Study:

Iceland’s Energy Policy: Finding the Right Path Forward – your group will meet before class to prepare for the case. (see the discussion page for details)
You are a staff person at the policy office for Katrin Julusdottir, the Minister for Industry, Energy, and Tourism of Iceland. You are part of a policy analysis team at the office. The team will have 4 or 5 members.

Your team’s mission is to make a recommendation to the Minister on a path forward for economic development for the country.

Given the time constraints and the limited data you have access to, this recommendation would be a very high level. You can’t be too specific about what the path forward would look like. You shall utilize the data in the case study as well as any other information you find via google. I would recommend only looking at data relating to the broad topics of tourism, aluminum refining, power production, and environmental impacts rather than incorporating any policy changes or decisions. Keep in mind that the case is in 2011 and seven years have passed since then. I do not use any additional data from the conclusions after that time of this case to bolster your arguments.

In making your recommendation, consider the following factors:

What is the problem the Minister is trying to solve?
What are the costs and benefits to the country for each sector you are analyzing?
Aluminum
Tourism
Power
Fishing
The tax base and Federal government
What alternative solutions can you come up with?
Divide up the work for your team. For example, you could divide up the sectors in point 2 above. But any approach you prefer is fine.

Be prepared to present your group’s recommendation to the class on October 8. Your presentation should be 10 minutes long, divided equally among your team members. The class will vote on which recommendation to take. You can only vote for another team, not your own.

Your group should meet before class to iron this out. You will meet first to divide up the responsibilities and then again to put your presentation together. You can meet via this discussion page, in person, or via some other online platform.
