Can Smart Grid Technology Fix the Disconnect Between Wholesale and Retail Pricing?

Ashley Brown and Raya Salter

The Electricity Journal, vol. 24, issue 1, 7-13

Abstract: While the past 20 years have seen the rapid development of wholesale electricity markets, sophisticated wholesale pricing has largely failed to be replicated in state retail markets. The emergence of Smart Grid technology, including metering and use of the Internet, has the very real potential to reduce, if not entirely remove, the disconnect between wholesale and retail markets, and enhance overall economic and energy efficiency.
