Title: Enter Stage Left: The New Energy Merchants

Abstract

Financial institutions and private equity investors have been buying merchant generating assets at a furious pace, and they don't play by the same rules as independent power producers and electric utilities. Are traditional players ready for the disruptions to come? Have distressed IPP plant prices bottomed out? The interest of these new entrants has several implications for future market fundamentals.
