Can Electricity Markets Be Competitive? Lessons from Deregulation

Lave, Lester N. and Blumsack, Seth and Perekhodstev, Dmitri (2004) Can Electricity Markets Be Competitive? Lessons from Deregulation. [Industry Studies Working Paper:2004-10]



The success in deregulating the airlines, trucking, railroad, natural gas, and petroleum industries led to deregulating the electricity industry in 1998 in California and Pennsylvania, and subsequently in several other states. The debacle in California caused that state to re-regulate, and some states followed that lead. This paper examines the electricity market to find the conditions necessary to create a competitive market and draws lessons for other industries.
