Policy Studies and Research

Boston Pacific counsels state regulatory commissions, regional transmission organizations, trade associations, corporations, government agencies, state regulators, legislators, and consumer advocates on technical, economic, and policy issues in the electricity businesses.  Our work includes research on emerging electricity issues and strategic planning and policy advising.

Boston Pacific has produced several widely distributed and respected policy reports and articles.  These include a report that examined price volatility in short-term electricity markets and the implications of that research for FERC’s Standard Market Design, a report on trends in electricity prices during the emerging competitive regime, and published articles regarding topics such as arguing for policymakers to stay the course on competitive reform.

More recently, we have helped our clients with strategic planning, commodity prices, environmental policy, decentralized technologies, resource development, and emerging technology decisions.  We have also researched and provide policy implications for judicial decisions in the electricity business.
