Dr. Lynne Kiesling on the future of energy

Dr. Lynne Kiesling, Visiting Associate Professor in the Department of Economics at Purdue University, will speak about the future of the electricity market in the UK.

Her new working paper, From Airbnb to Solar, focuses on what falling transaction costs and platform business models mean for the future of the electricity market. She is also the author of the 2015 Adam Smith Institute paper Power Up: The framework for a new era of UK energy distribution.

Dr. Kiesling's research in transactive energy uses transaction cost economics to examine regulation, market design, and technology in the development of retail markets, products and services and the economics of smart grid technologies in the electricity industry. In addition to her publication activity, she has served as a peer reviewer for the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation, and for academic journals including Energy Journal, Public Choice, Review of Economics and Statistics, and Energy Policy.
