Electricity Resource Adequacy: Matching Policies and Goals
- Author(s): Bushnell, James
- et al.
Policies designed to ensure resource adequacy in electricity markets have been rooted in a disparate set of policy goals. Differences over the appropriate goals and focus of such policies have produced different views about what are the appropriate means for achieving these goals. This paper explores the motivations for resource adequacy policies and discusses how different RA policies address, or conflict, with these goals.
