Electricity Economics in Changing Electricity Markets



“The new economics of power markets in a low-carbon world”


Date & Location:         


5 – 7 August 2019, Singapore




Are you ready for the new challenges & opportunities as power markets around the world evolve?


This is an essential core knowledge course for those involved in the business or regulation of the power industry.


It leads you through a clear, accessible and thorough examination of the economics of power generation, from power plant cost influences to end-customer prices. It contextualises this analysis with key consideration of industry drivers and trends, including increasingly liberalised and competitive markets, evolving policy support and management frameworks, the growth and integration of renewable power sources, and the restructuring of power systems towards more decentralised operations.


A highly interactive presentation style allows for plenty of Q&A and time to discuss the issues from multiple stakeholder perspectives; including power plant owners, investors, policymakers and energy customers. This course is an essential primer for those seeking to navigate successful business routes through transitioning electricity systems.
