The new economics of power markets in a low-carbon world
Are you ready for the new challenges & opportunities as power markets around the world evolve?
This is an essential course both for those generating and trading electricity and for those responsible for policy within the power industry. It leads you through a clear, accessible and thorough examination of the economics of power generation, from power plant cost influences to end-customer prices. It contextualises this analysis with key consideration of industry drivers and trends, including increasingly liberalised and competitive markets, evolving policy support and management frameworks, the growth and integration of renewable power sources, and the restructuring of power systems towards more decentralised operations.
The presenter allows for and encourages plenty of Q&A and discusses the issues from multiple stakeholder perspectives; including power plant owners, investors, policymakers and energy customers. This online course is an essential primer for those seeking to navigate successful business routes through transitioning electricity systems.
We’ll examine these key questions:
- Which variables drive the economics of electricity generation?
- How do generation costs combine with other factors to produce end-use electricity prices?
- How are current technology & system trends impacting electricity costs and prices?
- What are policymakers doing to keep costs down?
- Who are the key stakeholders and influencers on electricity economics?
- What are the value-chain impacts of market liberalisation and competition?
- How are solar and wind power (and other low-carbon options) changing market environments?
- … and many more!
