Wholesale power markets are evolving to accommodating the shifting landscape, but further adaptation will be necessary to maintain reliable and resilient markets. What will become of energy markets in a low-carbon future? What new pricing mechanisms may emerge? Are there limits to what markets can achieve? What lessons about market design have we already learned?
