The reform process of the electric power system has been taking place in Japan in preparation for the unbundling of the transmission sector in 2020. This process has revealed the issues to be studied for the remaining reforms after the unbundling.

This project aims at providing policy proposals for the post-unbundling reforms through an investigation of European experiences as well as theoretical and empirical analysis. This project is jointly conducted by economists and engineers.
