Competition and Regulation in Electricity Markets

Sebastian Eyre, Michael G. Pollitt

Featuring an original introduction by the editors, these carefully-selected essays explore the main issues surrounding competition and regulation in electricity markets. The industry is experiencing irresistible forces of change, driven by energy policy objectives; a reassessment of market regulation in the face of high-energy prices; and the response to consumer pressure to agree on what constitutes a fair price for energy. This volume identifies the key articles that underpin the debate across the industries supply chain (generation, supply and networks) from a regulatory perspective (including market power and incentive regulation). The collection then considers the overall impact of liberalisation and future developments.

This timely collection will be an invaluable source of reference for academics, practitioners, students and researchers interested in the field of competition and regulation in electricity markets.
