Economic Evaluation of Projects in the Electricity Supply by Hisham Khatib

By Hisham Khatib

In a hugely capital-intensive atmosphere corresponding to the electrical energy offer undefined, it really is crucial that these operating within the electricity box - on both the engineering or administration facet - comprehend the methodologies of comparing initiatives so as to totally understand and examine funding proposals and judgements. This new e-book, a considerably revised and up-to-date version of the author’s earlier paintings 'Financial and monetary evaluate of initiatives within the electrical energy provide undefined' (IEE/1996), takes a wide introductory method and comprises broad attention of industry and environmental concerns. It introduces the reader to the instruments and methods of monetary research and assessment, in addition to fresh environmental applied sciences and prices. New issues brought comprise electrical energy buying and selling and probability administration, evolving electrical energy utilities, and new and destiny new release applied sciences in a carbon-constrained world.

Least-cost planning based on deterministic assumptions, does not explicitly evaluate economic costs and risks of failure to achieve economic objectives. Therefore, the results of the investment are suboptimal. Also, deterministic methods do not help in understanding the mechanisms that greatly influence investment decisions, like the discount rate and impact of environmental factors. Such aspects will be dealt with in greater detail in the coming chapters. , April 1992, 17, (3) 2 GERHOLM, T. ’. : ‘Energy Analysis and Policy’ (Butterworth, London, 1990) 8 BACON, R.

Therefore, it is expected that these countries will invest more than twice as much on their distribution facilities compared with transmission. Strengthening and extension of rural networks, in many developing countries, will be the centre of interest. At the time of writing there are some two billion people, mostly living in rural areas, who have no accessibility to electricity supply. Providing them with electricity is the greatest challenge facing developing countries in their pursuit of sustainable development.

Deregulation, unbundling of the transmission network and difficulties in getting way leaves are creating bottle necks in transmission facilities in many developed countries. Most developed and developing countries need to invest sufficiently to extend and improve their distribution networks. Losses in the distribution system include most system losses in the developing countries. Projects to reduce losses and improve the supply continuity will figure highly in developing countries’ distribution plans.
