  • 1. International businessThe electricity industry Silvester van Koten PAHX CERGE-EI Florence School of Regulation
  • 2. Transmission Principles of Transmission, applied to the EU transmission network1. Line limits2. Principles of dispatch3. Role of frequency in ac lines and stability requirements4. Transmission shortage, the internal market and the 2050 carbon targets
  • 3. Power plants
  • 4. Distributors
  • 5. Transmission
  • 6. Industrial consumers Transmission Other countries DistributorsPower Plants Residential consumers: Households
  • 7. 1. Power plants
  • 8. Hydro-plant
  • 9. Baseload Large coal plants
  • 10. Baseload Nuclear plants
  • 11. Peaker Oil burning plants

  • 15. Multitude of generation types• Trade-off: – Economics of scale Baseload power plants • High fixed cost • Low variable costs – Flexibility • Low fixed costs Peaker power plants • High variable costs
  • 16. Fixed cost per Variable cost MWh per MWhBaseload 40 0Peaker 10 50

  • 18. Peaker6040 Baseload100 Capacity factor 60% 100% Use peakers Use baseload when capacity when capacity factor < 60% factor > 60%
  • 19. PEAKER BASELOAD
  • 20. Very expensive to built a plant for only 87 hours! Cost? $1050/MWH (=100*10+50)0 1% =87 hours
  • 21. Price spike
  • 22. Can price-spikes be avoided?- Cap the price, eg at $1000/MWH
  • 23. Cost is $1050/MWH > price cap0 1% =87 hours ?
  • 24. BLACKOUT
  • 25. Cost is $1050/MWH > price cap0 1% =87 hours ?
  • 26. Can price-spikes be avoided?- Cap the price, eg at $1000/MWH- Capacity market - Pay power plants for being prepared to generate, even if they are not called upon

  • 119. Largest 3 foreign investors:• E.ON (Germany)• Enel (Italy)• Fortum (Finland)
  • 120. Need for new investment• Most power stations built in 1960-1970 – Low efficiency ratio of 33-35% instead of 40-52%• Ministry of Energy: modernization program for generators of 10 trillion rubles up till 2030 – Increase in demand for equipment• Russian technology behind western standards – heavy duty gas turbines – ultra supercritical steam turbines – gasification – process control systems
  • 121. Electricity consumption Russia, 2007 Gigantic losses
  • 122. Growth of electricity demand
  • 123. Competition problems• No working retail markets yet• Fair access to gas for fair and equal prices – Gas fired generators 40% of production – Newcomers often CCGT – Gazprom (75% share) seems to favor its own subsidiary generators• Financial energy market not developed – Risk management
  • 124. Regulation• regulatory authority: the Market Council• But not independent, government: – control over most pricing issues – Veto over Market Council decisions
