Papers of Peter Cramton from University of Maryland, Department of Economics - Peter Cramton

Abstract: This paper examines principles of market design as applied to electricity markets. I illustrate the principles with examples of both good and bad designs. I discuss one of the main design challenges—dealing with market power. I then discuss FERC’s choice of a standard market design.
