Competitive Electricity Markets - Design, Implementation, Performance

Edited by Fereidoon Perry Sioshansi 
Elsevier  February 2008  

Hardcover  624 pp  ISBN 9780080471723      £100.00
Covers timely topics on the evolution of electricity market liberilisation worldwide. After two decades, policy makers and regulators agree that electricity market reform, liberalization and privatization remain partly art, while international experience suggests that in nearly all cases, initial market reform leads to unintended consequences or introduces new risks which then need to be addressed in subsequent 'reform of reforms'.

This book describes the evolution of the market reform process including a number of challenging issues, such as infrastructure investment, resource adequacy, capacity and demand participation, market power, distributed generation, renewable energy and global climate change.

Will be of value to professionals, policy makers/regulators, students, researchers, and investors in the electric power sector, generating companies, distribution companies, manufacturers and suppliers.
