Who is KEMI?  The Kellogg Electricity Markets Initiative (KEMI) will promote practical research related to the design of electricity markets, with particular attention to the need for reorganizing these markets to face critical challenges.  It will also include the translation of this research into actionalbe steps and the exchange of different view about the issues through a network of collaborators.
