Wind Power in a Natural Gas Environment: Hedge Value and Risk Analyses


Belinda Ernestine (Editor)

Series: Energy Science, Engineering and Technology
BISAC: TEC031010

Expanding production of the United States’ vast shale gas reserves in recent years has put the country on a path towards greater energy independence, enhanced economic prosperity, and (potentially) reduced emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants. The corresponding expansion of gas-fired generation in the power sector – driven primarily by lower natural gas prices – has also made it easier and cheaper to integrate large amounts of variable renewable generation, such as wind power, into the grid. This book discusses the long-term hedge value of wind power and provides an analysis of wind and natural gas under different market structures. (Imprint: Novinka )
