This is not to say that unexpected events will not happen, only that the effects of these events are already known from past experience (Awerbuch and Berger, 2003). g. imported gas, or supply shocks due to physical disruption in the supply chain. Investing in generation technologies which help a country (or a utility) to mitigate its exposure to fossil fuel supply disruptions or price risks can be thought as an insurance. g. see Roques, 2008, for a critique of the traditional levelized cost methodology).

E. taking a national or societal perspective, is that more diverse generation portfolios are in general associated with lower risks for the same returns. In particular, optimal portfolios contain a substantial share of fixed-cost (when considering only fuel price uncertainty) renewables and nuclear, whose costs have a low covariance with the production costs of fossil fuel technologies. Some recent studies have taken a different approach by taking a private investor perspective. These studies therefore also take into account electricity price risk (and in Europe CO2 price risk), and the covariance of electricity, fuel and CO2 prices.
