    • Large Scale Deployment of Renewables for Electricity Generation 

      Neuhoff, Karsten (Faculty of Economics, 2006-03-14)
      Comparisons of resource assessments suggest resource constraints are not an obstacle to the large-scale deployment of renewable energy technologies. Economic analysis identifies barriers to the adoption of renewable energy ...
    • Learning curves and changing product attributes: the case of wind turbines 

      Coulomb, Louis; Neuhoff, Karsten (Faculty of Economics, 2006-03-14)
      The heuristic concept of learning curves describes cost reductions as a function of cumulative production. A study of the Liberty shipbuilders suggested that product quality and production scale are other relevant factors ...
    • Lessons from conditionality provisions for southnorth cooperation on climate change 

      Sippel, M.; Neuhoff, Karsten (Faculty of Economics, 2008-10)
    • Long-term Framework for Electricity Distribution Access Charges 

      Jamasb, Tooraj; Neuhoff, Karsten; Newbery, David; Pollitt, Michael G. (Faculty of Economics, 2006-03-14)
      In order to achieve overall economic efficiency, incentive regulation of electricity distribution utilities must address two important and inter-related issues. First, the utilities’ allowed revenues need to be set at ...
    • Long-term vs. Short-term Contracts; A European perspective on natural gas 

      Neuhoff, Karsten; von Hirschhausen, Christian (Faculty of Economics, 2006-03-14)
      This paper analyses the economics of long-term gas contracts under changing institutional conditions, mainly gas sector liberalisation. The paper is motivated by the increasingly tense debate in continental Europe, UK and ...
    • Mainstreaming New Renewable Energy Technologies 

      Neuhoff, Karsten; Sellers, Rick (Faculty of Economics, 2006-03)
      This paper outlines the benefits, obstacles and options for governments to support international markets for technology development. International markets for new energy technologies offer greater scope, thereby increasing ...
    • Market Power and Technological Bias: The Case of Electricity Generation 

      Twomey, Paul; Neuhoff, Karsten (Faculty of Economics, 2006-03-14)
      It is difficult to elminated all market power in electricity markets and it is therefore frequently suggested that some market power should be tolerated: extra revenues contribute to fixed cost recovery,facilitate investment ...
    • Modelling Dynamic Constraints in Electricity Markets and the Costs of Uncertain Wind Output 

      Musgens, Felix; Neuhoff, Karsten (Faculty of Economics, 2006-03-14)
      Building on models that represent inter-temporal constraints in the optimal production decisions for electricity generation,the paper analysis the resulting costs and their impact on prices during the day. We linearise the ...
    • Modelling Wind in the Electricity Sector 

      Neuhoff, Karsten; Cust, J.; Keats, Kim (Faculty of Economics, 2007-02)
      We represent hourly, regional an wind data and transmission constraints in an investment planning model calibrated to the UK and test sensitivities of least cost expansions to fuel and technology prices. Thus we can calculate ...
    • Network-constrained models of liberalized electricity markets: the devil is in the details 

      Barquin, J.; Boots, M. G.; Ehrenmann, A.; Hobbs, Benjamin F.; Neuhoff, Karsten; Rijkers, F. A. M. (Faculty of Economics, 2004-06-16)
      Numerical models for electricity markets are frequently used to inform and support decisions. How robust are the results? Three research groups used the same, realistic data set for generators, demand and transmission ...
    • Operational and Investment Response to Energy Prices in the OECD Manufacturing Sector 

      Steinbuks, J.; Neuhoff, Karsten (Faculty of Economics, 2010-03)
    • Optimal congestion treatment for bilateral electricity trading 

      Neuhoff, Karsten (Faculty of Economics, 2004-06-16)
      How to treat transmission constraints in electricity markets that are not based on a pool but on bilateral trading? Three approaches are currently discussed: First, the system operator resolves constraints and socialises ...
    • A Review of the Monitoring of Market Power The Possible Roles of TSOs in Monitoring for Market Power Issues in Congested Transmission Systems 

      Twomey, Paul; Green, Richard J.; Neuhoff, Karsten; Newbery, David (Faculty of Economics, 2006-03-14)
      The paper surveys the literature and publicly available information on market power monitoring in electricity wholesale markets. After briefly reviewing definitions, strategies and methods of mitigating market power we ...
    • Rural Electrification in India: Economic and Industrial Aspects of Renewables 

      Cust, J.; Singh, Anoop; Neuhoff, Karsten (Faculty of Economics, 2007-12)
      The paper assesses the demand for rural electricity services and contrasts it with the technology options available for rural electrification. Decentralised Distributed Generation can be economically viable as reflected ...
    • Space and Time: Wind in an Investment Planning Model 

      Neuhoff, Karsten; Ehrenmann, A.; Butler, Lucy; Cust, J.; Hoexter, Harriet; Keats, Kim; Kreczko, Adam et al. (Faculty of Economics, 2006-03-14)
      Investment planning models inform investment decisions and government policies. Current models do not capture the intermittent nature of renewable energy sources, restricting the applicability of the models for high ...
    • Take-or-pay Contracts for Renewables Deployment 

      Johnston, Angus; Kavali, Amalia; Neuhoff, Karsten (Faculty of Economics, 2007-01)
      Renewables require support policies to deliver the European 20% target. We discuss the requirements for least cost development and efficient operation and quantify how different schemes (i) allow for the development of a ...
    • Use of Long-term Auctions for Network Investment 

      McDaniel, Tanga; Neuhoff, Karsten (Faculty of Economics, 2004-06-16)
      Short-term auctions for access to entry terminals of the British gas-network appear to successfully allocate scarce resources and capture scarcity rent. Now long-term auctions are being introduced to guide future capacity ...
