Description:

This archive contains the first edition of the Power Sector Reform Tracker (PSRT). Created by the Initiative for Sustainable Energy Policy (ISEP), the database includes data for 142 non-OECD countries on eight types of power sector reforms: liberalization law, corporatization, independent regulatory agency, independent power producers, unbundling, privatization, wholesale electricity markets, and choice of supplier. The database covers years 1982-2013. The archive also contains a replication package for the analysis presented in Urpelainen and Yang (forthcoming).
