Dr. Anastasia Shcherbakova, an applied economist in the Texas A&M Department of Agricultural Economics and a 研究 Fellow with the Mosbacher Institute, did the math. She and her collaborators examined data from the Pennsylvania-New Jersey-Maryland power grid to see what happens to electricity price volatility when coal generators unexpectedly go offline and found that electricity price volatility was actually lower during hours when the natural gas generators were setting the price of electricity. The author concludes that because natural gas generators are more flexible and better able to respond to changing market conditions, they actually reduce price volatility, meaning that environmental benefits do not have to come at the expense of greater price risk.
