Such decarbonization are likely to require substantial and coordinated private sector investment in non-emitting electricity generation as part of a significant expansion of the electricity sector to incorporate electrification of water and space heating and transportation services. These changes accompany expansion of electricity services for technology industries and miscellaneous energy uses. This transformation will be truly disruptive, and this project aims at understanding barriers and facilitators for the private sector in shaping and contributing collectively to the needed transformation. Specific focus during the first year will be to develop a conceptual model to understand necessary market reforms and understanding the role for price instruments in shaping collective action in the private sector.
