We consider the problem of transition to a carbon free energy source taking into account the market structure of the fossil fuel markets. We fully characterize the equilibrium of this game under different demand and cost specifications. We show that the welfare loss with respect to the first best is mostly due to inefficient composition of the supply from fossil fuels rather than the overall quantity supplied by that sector.
