Click other publications below by or featuring Robert Blohm on electricity deregulation (and that began as economics publications that helped prevent the breakup of Canada, stop US financing of an uneconomic electric megaproject supporting secession from Canada, prompt the marketization of Canada's two largest electric utilities, and trigger reform of Canada's public finance). Correctly warned against the high prices due to spot-market monopolization of regulated service in California and Ontario that inspired the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to decertify the California Power Exchange and trigger the California electricity market crash. Successfully warned Japan against having an independent system operator operate an electric power exchange. Continue to warn in North America against mandating a single "standard" market design for scheduled electricity, and of the need to price unscheduled power for electric reliability.
