Abstract

This report highlights important changes in inputs to the computation of avoided energy costs in New England, in particular the current and projected fuel prices and the amount of generation being added in New England. In addition, New England now has more experience with the operation of the restructured market, allowing this update to model more realistically the bidding behavior of generators and the pricing behavior of power marketers. The energy-supply components developed in this report are to be used for the purposes of demand-side-management planning, evaluation, and implementation only.
