Oxford Martin Fellow’s paper highlighted by journal Nature Energy

In its January issue, the new research journal Nature Energy included a Research Highlight article that features a paper from Jacquelyn Pless, Oxford Martin Fellow, titled “Bribes, bureaucracies, and blackouts: Towards understanding how corruption at the firm level impacts electricity reliability.” The paper, published in Resource and Energy Economics, argues that electricity grids exhibit common-pool resource characteristics and that reducing corruption at the firm level can lead to growth and development in the electricity sector.

Jacquelyn Pless is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute for New Economic Thinking and Oxford Martin Fellow of the Oxford Martin Programme on Integrating Renewable Energy.
