The Effect of Restructuring Electricity Distribution Systems on Firms' Persistent and Transient Efficiency

In particular, we consider two types of efficiency, i.e., short-term (transient) and long-term (persistent). We apply the recently developed four-component stochastic frontier model, which allows identifying determinants of the two types of efficiency, after controlling for firm heterogeneity ...
