Electricity Cost Modeling Calculation: Regulations, Technology, and the Role of Renewable Energy, Second Edition delivers an updated view on pricing models, regulation, technology and the role renewable energy is starting to take in electricity. Starting with fundamental concepts on market structure and the increase in international regulations, the book includes cubic cost modeling cases and updated literature reviews for deeper research. Other sections cover more advanced quantitative methods such as load forecasting, updated rate designs, and the marginal cost of electricity in the United States. Includes applications will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, thus making the reference relevant for today’s power markets.

This book gives today’s engineers a practical guide on the latest techniques in electricity pricing and applications for today’s markets.
