Michael Waterson is Professor of Economics at Warwick University.
His research interests are in industrial economics, in particular the economics of retailing, including pricing, locational and vertical restraint issues. The development of competition in energy industries. Regulation, access pricing and the comparative analysis of regulatory regimes. Competition policy and consumer behaviour.
His knowledge and perspective is invaluable as New Optimists Forum explores the potential of distributed energy supply systems for Birmingham (and other cities) and what the impact that could be on us all.
