Electric utility regulation under enhanced renewable energy integration and distributed generation

Nori Tarui ()

No 2017-2, Working Papers from University of Hawaii Economic Research Organization, University of Hawaii at Manoa

Abstract: The economic environment for electric utilities is changing in the United States given increased penetration of distributed generation and limited rooms for sales growth. This paper reviews the recent development of relevant policies in the United States and their economic impacts. This review indicates both challenges and opportunities in improving the policies to enhance distributed generation, and in finding the directions in which electric utility regulation should be reformed.
