The coordination of centralised and distributed generation
Matteo Basei, UC Berkeley
We analyse the interaction between centralised carbon-emissive technologies and distributed non-emissive technologies. A representative consumer can satisfy her electricity demand by investing in solar panels and by buying power from a centralised firm. We consider the point of view of the consumer, the firm and a social planner, formulating suitable McKean-Vlasov control problems with stochastic coefficients. First, we provide explicit formulas for the production strategies which minimise the costs. Then, we look for an equilibrium price. Joint work with René Aid and Huyen Pham.
