Regulating Regional Power Systems

Synopsis

The electrical power sector operates under an archaic regulatory system that is ill-equipped to oversee a competitive, restructured, regionally-organized industry. This book offers the first systematic discourse on regional aspects of regulatory reform, sharing topical perspectives from leading actors and regional case studies that show how the debate plays out on the ground. This book frames the policy debate; applies economic and political theoretical lenses to federalism issues; outlines options for regulatory reform, modes of cooperation, and an analytical basis for decisions; and, most important provides a strategic road map for the industry over the coming decade. Contributors to this volume include current and former regulators at the State and Federal levels, senior utility executives, leading advocates, government policy makers, and academics.
