Electricity Markets and Power System Economics

After the 1st strength plant in historical past was once commissioned for advertisement operation via Thomas Edison on Pearl road in long island in 1882, electrical energy used to be offered as a shopper product at industry costs. After a interval of swift improvement, electrical energy had develop into the sort of primary product that law was once believed to be worthy.

Mass production has greatly increased the use of electricity in industry. Global warming may be inevitable but reduction of emissions is a different matter. Coal-fired power generation has been attacked in Canada and elsewhere on grounds of public health yet electricity as a source of energy is emission free at the point of use. Go to Scandinavia, where in Norway almost all electricity up to now has been generated by hydro power, and to Sweden where it is half water power and half nuclear, and the air is noticeably cleaner.

The fact that the oil and gas industries are in the forefront of CCS development is because carbon dioxide is, to them, an impurity which they must remove from oil and natural gas to meet their customers’ specifications. When natural gas has to be liquefied for shipment to market it is cooled down to a lower temperature than the sublimation point of carbon dioxide which, if it was not first to be removed from the gas, would cause blockages in pipes and valves of the liquefaction plant. So there are good commercial reasons for removing carbon dioxide and the oil and gas fields have the geological structure to contain the sequestered gas and prevent it leaking up to the surface.

It is primarily addressed to the domestic market where it is well within the scope of many householders to insulate their homes and procure double glazing and low-energy lighting. indd 24 14/10/2009, 18:52 Global warming 25 insulation, double glazing and condensing gas heaters to reduce overall energy demand. There are many other measures that individuals can take to control and reduce their electricity consumption. For instance, if enough people change incandescent bulbs for the equivalent fluorescent low-energy units, it could make a big difference to the lighting load for a whole country.
