Power Market Reform: Dividends, Market Impacts, and Transition Options

    China is currently undergoing power sector reform.Electricity market transition in China has the potential to further the country’s environmental and economic aspirations. The overarching question of the research is how can Guangdong (and China) best navigate the political economy of a transition to electricity markets? And how can regulation and market design support the transition to a cleaner electricity system? To answer the question the authors create relatively simple model of the Guangdong electricity system, focusing on structural differences between generators,assume convergence to economic (marginal cost- based) dispatch with a single market clearing price,and examine total cost impacts relative to a reference scenario, impacts on net revenues for different types of generators.
