This thesis presents a series of studies on electricity market design and environmental policy. The studies cover the interaction between electricity market structure and renewable energy, demand side measures to improve electricity market efficiency, and effects of carbon policy on electricity production. Chapter 1 shows how a competitive electricity market in the Midwestern US. affected wind energy when it began in the mid-2000’s. Chapter 2 identifies consumer savings and other effects of improving demand side participation in electricity markets. Chapter 3 simulates the effects of carbon policy on the U.S. electricity industry.
