  • About

    Reid Dorsey-Palmateer is a Ph.D. candidate in economics at the University of Michigan with interests in energy/environmental economics and industrial organization, focusing on electricity markets. His job market paper examines how the intermittency of wind power affects electricity generation and the resulting emissions as well as the implications for wind subsidy policy. Other projects in progress examine the effect of alternate transitional policies during retail electricity deregulation and the financial and environmental impact of reducing curtailment of wind generation in Texas through construction of transmission lines. Before attending the University of Michigan, Mr. Dorsey-Palmateer graduated from Pomona College with a degree in economics and worked as a research assistant at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors.
