About the Authors
  • This book is an exploration and analysis of the electricity industry in the context of uncertainty following the energy crisis of the 1970s and concern over the greenhouse effect. Electricity has long been regarded as a natural monopoly, but questions of privatization, regulation and government control are increasingly prevalent. The book explores these issues through case studies from Australia, Canada and New Zealand. Aynsley Kellow argues for new approaches to electricity planning, which offer both economic and environmental benefits.

    • Timely study of privitisation of the power industries
    • Australia, Canada and New Zealand are highlighted as case studies
    • Highlights environmental concerns, in particular the greenhouse effect
