This chapter presents policymakers' view on the deregulated electricity industry in the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) chairman Pat Wood III argues that electricity markets require certain structural elements to ensure they are efficient and function properly. Edison Electric Institute president Thomas R. Kuhn offers his opinions on the best legislative and regulatory rule changes to ensure the continued growth of the electricity industry. U.S. Congressman Joe Barton discusses his vision of future legislation to continue to push forward with competitive markets rather than return to regulated rates.
