Economics of Reliable Power

T. Dueck (USA)


Premium power economics, infrastructure reliability


As our economy depends more and more on information technology, the facilities and power that provide the supporting infrastructure needs to evolve. Distributed generation, co-generation and a variety of local power reliability enhancements will not only affect end-user and utility customers, but will also impact the way the new power economy delivers its products and services. The de-regulated environment should help reduce power costs, putting downward pressure on utility revenues. However, properly positioned, the retail power provider can enhance customer power reliability through a variety of services and reliability products, and achieve a better margin on such services, but only when there are sufficient accountability and performance incentives.
