燃煤电厂退役电厂将导致更多的挥发性电价?

2019年12月17日

天然气价格低和环境法规已使我们许多实用工具删除煤电他们的工厂和建立新的天然气发电机。但是,由于煤炭价格往往比天然气价格更加稳定,有些担心这种趋势会导致ESTA更加不稳定电价。

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.
