  • Modelling German electricity wholesale spot prices with a parsimonious
           fundamental model – Validation & application
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2019Source: Utilities Policy, Volume 58Author(s): Philip Beran, Christian Pape, Christoph WeberAbstractIn this paper, we introduce a parsimonious fundamental model for the German day-ahead market. The methodology approximates the supply stack by a piecewise linear function and considers fundamental information, e.g. power plant availabilities, must-run production and cross-border exchange. We reduce complexity by considering technology classes, uncoupled time periods and only one market area. The model accurately reproduces the hourly historical prices and electricity production volumes for most thermal production units in Germany. In a case study, we investigate the effects of the German nuclear phase-out decision. We find an additional price decrease and reduced electricity imports in the counterfactual scenario.
       
  • Social benefit of urban infrastructure: An empirical analysis of four
           Chinese autonomous municipalities
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2019Source: Utilities Policy, Volume 58Author(s): Yin Cui, Yu SunAbstractUrban infrastructure social benefit is the positive influence on social progress and development generated by the use of urban infrastructure. This paper deconstructs urban infrastructure social benefit into three effects: income effect, resident health effect, and development potential effect. We introduce a comprehensive approach to analysing these levels and apply it to four Chinese autonomous municipalities. The results show that the three effects of urban infrastructure social benefit were not coordinated, which led to its low levels in these four cities.
       
  • Decorporatization of a municipal water utility: A case study from Italy
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Utilities Policy, Volume 57Author(s): Loris Landriani, Luigi Lepore, Gabriella D'Amore, Stefano Pozzoli, Federico AlvinoAbstractIn Italy, debate over management forms of water utilities has continued for about thirty years, with legislation that periodically oscillates between the involvement of the private sector and keeping water management in public hands. Political and scientific discourse has focused considerable attention on ownership structure, following the ideological dichotomy of “public or private” rather than on models of governance, management, and performance. The literature finds divergent conclusions, which highlights the key role of country's institutional context in identifying the best management forms. The present work aims at providing policy and regulatory implications of decorporatization in Italy following the 2011 popular referendum through a case study of the first of its kind involving the ABC utility based in Naples. In particular, the role of primary stakeholders in the process is highlighted.
       
  • Energy transition and the future(s) of the electricity sector
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Utilities Policy, Volume 57Author(s): Christophe DefeuilleyAbstractWe develop narrative futures to analyze the impact that the energy transition may have on the electricity sector's organizational model: re-arrangement, incremental change, or first steps in a paradigm shift. What trajectories might the changes in the electricity sector follow' We look back at the way the centralized and standardized model was constructed before laying out how that model is being disrupted by the changes currently underway and then exploring the different factors – political, institutional, technical – that might influence change in the electricity sector and the scale of transformation it may undergo.
       
  • Developing a municipality typology for modelling decentralised energy
           systems
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Utilities Policy, Volume 57Author(s): J.M. Weinand, R. McKenna, W. FichtnerAbstractOne solution to the large-scale integration of renewable energies could be decentralised autonomous municipal energy systems. Several studies have already analysed the technical and economic implications of the mainly decentralised future energy system, but most are restricted in their insights by limited temporal and spatial resolution. This study employs a cluster analysis to develop a municipality typology in order to analyse the techno-economic suitability of municipalities for autonomous energy systems. A total of 34 socio-technical indicators are employed at the municipal level, with a particular focus on the sectors of Private Households and Transport, and the potentials for decentralised renewable energies. Selected quantitative cluster validation methods are employed alongside qualitative criteria to determine the optimal number of clusters. This results in a total of ten clusters, which show a large variation as well as some overlap with respect to specific indicators. An analysis of the municipalities from three German renewable energy projects “Energy Municipalities”, “Bioenergy Villages” and “100% Renewable Energy Regions” shows that in eight of the ten clusters municipalities are aiming for energy autonomy (in varying degrees). It is challenging to differentiate between the clusters regarding readiness for energy autonomy projects, however, especially if the degree of social acceptance and engagement for such projects is to be considered. To answer the more techno-economical part of this question, future work will employ the developed clusters in the context of an energy system optimisation. Insights gained at the municipal level will then be qualitatively transferred to the national context to assess the implications for the whole energy system.
       
  • The development and cost of renewable energy resources in Vietnam
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Utilities Policy, Volume 57Author(s): Phuong Anh Nguyen, Malcolm Abbott, Thanh Loan T. NguyenAbstractVietnam has abundant natural resources, but a high vulnerability to climate change. The Vietnamese government, therefore, has avddeclared its intention to encourage clean energy development. To achieve this, the cost of renewables needs to be competitive with fossil fuels. The purpose of this paper is to review past studies of the levelised international costs for various renewable energy resources and compare them to the costs of renewables in Vietnam. In Vietnam, there is evidence that the cost of non-hydro renewables has fallen in recent years, as they have internationally, making them more viable. In the Vietnamese case, however, the potential for growth in the use of non-hydro renewables is impeded by the low cost of hydropower, which constitutes a significant barrier to the introduction of non-hydro renewables in the short to medium terms.
       
  • Network DEA models for assessing urban water utility efficiency
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Utilities Policy, Volume 57Author(s): Dickson K. Gidion, Jin Hong, Magdalene Z.A. Adams, Mohammad KhoveyniAbstractUrban water utilities (UWUs) operate in environments without competitors; regulators use targets to monitor UWU operations, with the expectation that the current year's performance should be equal to or better than the previous year's performance. This paper presents a performance analysis of UWUs using data envelopment analysis (DEA). Standard DEA for relative performance evaluation has shortcomings and does not allow for setting clear improvement guidelines. For this reason, network DEA models are proposed to overcome the problem. This novel benchmarking technique produces an efficiency value for a UWU in a competitive scenario with other UWUs. The technique allows decision-makers to sort out UWUs with the best and worst management environments and set clear performance improvement guidelines.
       
  • Identifying optimal technological portfolios for European power generation
           towards climate change mitigation: A robust portfolio analysis approach
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Utilities Policy, Volume 57Author(s): Aikaterini Forouli, Haris Doukas, Alexandros Nikas, Jon Sampedro, Dirk-Jan Van de VenAbstractHere, an integrative approach is proposed to link integrated assessment modelling results from the GCAM model with a novel portfolio analysis framework. This framework comprises a bi-objective optimisation model, Monte Carlo analysis and the Iterative Trichotomic Approach, aimed at carrying out stochastic uncertainty assessment and enhancing robustness. The approach is applied for identifying optimal technological portfolios for power generation in the EU towards climate change mitigation until 2050. The considered technologies include photovoltaics, concentrated solar power, wind, nuclear, biomass and carbon capture and storage, for which different subsidy curves for emissions reduction and energy security are considered.
       
  • The U.S. electricity market twenty years after restructuring: A review
           experience in the state of Delaware
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Utilities Policy, Volume 57Author(s): Wei-Ming ChenAbstractElectricity industry restructuring in the United States, which began in the 1990s, was aimed at enhancing market competitiveness and lead to efficient resource allocation and cost reduction. The state of Delaware was one of the earliest adopters of restructuring and has gained more than 20 years of experience. The retail customers in a restructured market had greater opportunities to choose between electricity generators. However, this research compares electricity prices and finds that restructured states have higher electricity rates than non-restructured states. A better understanding of the welfare and satisfaction of electricity customers in the context of restructuring is needed.
       
  • Detecting collusion in retail electricity markets: Results from Japan for
           2005 to 2010
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Utilities Policy, Volume 57Author(s): Isamu MatsukawaAbstractThis analysis investigates whether the Cournot model of imperfect competition holds true in the Japanese retail electricity market, using monthly data over the period 2005 to 2010. One concern about electricity markets that are open to retail competition is the potential for collusive behavior of some suppliers. A revealed preference test of the Cournot model is conducted, using market price and firm output data, as in Carvajal et al. (2013). The application of the revealed preference test to the retail electricity market in Japan indicates that the possibility of collusive behavior among the incumbents cannot be excluded.
