This volume contains papers that were discussed at the fust workshop on Markets for Electricity: Economics and Technology (MEET) held at Stanford University on March 7-8, 1997. The workshop's focus was how to design competitive electricity markets in an industry undergoing rapid changes in both economics and technology. We are very appreciative of the generous funding support provided by Dr. Gail McCarthy, Director of Strategic Science and Technology at Electric Power Research Institute. We would like to acknowledge all the workshop participants, including Paul Joskow, Martin Baughman, William Hogan, Robert Wilson, Granger Morgan, Paul Kleindorfer, Shmuel Oren, Edward Kahn, Stephen Rassenti, Stephen Stofl:, Stephen Peck, Victor Niemeyer, Jeremy Bloom, Martin Weinberger and Al Pak, for their significant contributions in discussing these issues at that workshop.
