Even the Brattle Group, authors of the Forward Clean Energy Market (FCEM), acknowledge that consumer  engagement is the most efficient method to decarbonize - see link below.

So why are some parties in New England continuing to pursue FCEM and Net carbon pricing (NCP) as the pathway forward for grid decarbonization, even after FCEM author, Brattle Group, has acknowledged that engaging green buyers/consumers is a more effective way to decarbonize the grid.

Dick, without a link to Brattle/Oracle's study I guess we're left to believe PV Magazine, whose sponsors profit from selling solar panels to consumers, has determined selling solar panels to consumers is the best way to hasten decarbonization.

Who would have thought?

I agree, Bob a link to the study would have been useful.
