Regulation and Integration of Solar PV into Electricity Markets

Solar Photovoltaics (PV) will be an essential component of the electricity portfolio of the future. Solar PV costs have declined substantially and installed capacity has grown rapidly. Despite this progress, there are numerous barriers to the adoption and integration of solar into electricity markets worldwide. The objective of our research program is to analyze the impacts of existing policies and regulations, and to consider alternative mechanisms to alleviate these barriers.
