Improvement of power generation facility investment systems for achieving resource adequacy in electric power industry

Related Document
Frame of Image roblem 1: An underestimation of long-term electricity demand due to optimistic projections on electricity price results in insufficient investment in power generation facilities. ○ Problem 2: Uncoordinated investment plans in power generation facilities and transmission networks can exacerbate regional disproportion of power facility distribution and can cause inefficiency and instability in transmission networks. ○ Problem 3: Leaving the assessment of uncertainty factors up to the small group who lead the planning may distort future power generation mix. ○ Problem 4: A considerable number of the planned investment projects remain unexecuted due to the absence of effective means to enforce or induce implementation of investment plans  This paper attempts to propose deregulation of power generation market entry and introduction of a capacity obligation scheme as measures to deal with Problems 3 and 4.
