If smaller actors enter the electricity market and earn more revenue from KWh sold, less will be left to major utilities firms. These are the firms that have had natural monopoly on central grids and made long term investments in projects that would be too large for any smaller actor to finance. How does the decentralisation of the electricity market impact on our ability to finance large scale grid projects? How does it impact on the ability of major utilities to recover the costs of high CAPEX projects?
