Course description

Electricity Economics & Financial Analysis

This intensive, technical and hands-on course – Electricity Economics & Financial Analysis – explores the theory and practice of price forecasting, valuations and assessing risk in the electricity generating industry.

After discussion of electricity markets around the world, the course moves to programming and model structuring, where you will follow the lead of the instructor in building various analyses of forward pricing and valuation issues.

As the course progresses, you will apply risk assessment, option pricing, and valuation techniques in real world cases using an integrated model. In addition to building you own models, you will learn how to use fully developed models that incorporate sophisticated debt structuring, break-even analysis, contract pricing, time series equations and Monte Carlo simulation.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

  • Learn practical tools to analyse a host of issues in electricity analysis including efficient tools to work with supply and demand data; creating flexible scenario and sensitivity analysis to evaluate power prices and marginal costs; effectively presenting short-term and long-term supply and curves; development of hydro analysis; Monte Carlo simulation and other issues.
  • Create demand and supply models of electricity pricing that incorporates changes in fuel prices new capacity demand profiles maintenance outages to measure hourly marginal cost and total generation cost.
  • Study the structure of market designs around the world and simulate pricing strategies through evaluation of the California crisis and simulation exercises.
  • Understand the relationship between capacity pricing reliability loss of load probability and reserve margins through extending the short-run supply and demand analysis and modelling outage cost with different capacity configurations.
  • Model the economic value of different types of renewable resources in alternative markets including storage hydro run-of-river hydro wind and solar.
  • Develop efficient ways to quickly compute the levelised electricity cost of different technologies using carrying charge factors and alternative financial models and use levelised cost analysis to develop screening models of optimal resources.
  • Evaluate long-run marginal cost of electricity cost through simulating the value of different generating resources given load curves and simulate the effects of different capital costs heat rates and fuel prices on the long-run marginal cost.
  • Compute the effects of start-up costs heat rate curves and transmission constraints on the value of alternative plants and the price of electricity.
