4 Generation Options in a Carbon Constrained World

5 5 © 2006 Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. All rights reserved. September 2006 Generation Options Framework Levelized cost of electricity –Standard EPRI methodology –Constant 2006 $ costs –Lines are mean values from a range of studies Two key uncertainties –Future cost of CO 2 –Future price of natural gas Two timeframes – time-period – time-period

6 6 © 2006 Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. All rights reserved. September 2006 Comparative Costs in Cost of CO 2, $/metric ton Levelized Cost of Electricity, $/MWh CF Nuclear PC IGCC Biomass

7 7 © 2006 Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. All rights reserved. September 2006 Take-Aways for Time Period Nuclear is clearly lowest-cost, but unlikely before 2015 due to significant licensing & construction time. Next most economic are fossil-fueled technologies (NGCC, PC, and IGCC) w/o CO 2 capture and storage –Will comprise dispatchable base-load generation prior to 2015 –Natural gas will re-emerge only if prices ~$4/MMBtu New advanced coal plants with CO 2 capture and storage will probably not occur until after Carbon prices must be > $30/tCO 2 for wind, biomass

18 18 © 2006 Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. All rights reserved. September 2006 Net Revenues for Advanced Generation Units

19 19 © 2006 Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. All rights reserved. September 2006 Key Insights 1.Higher production costs from CO 2 value does not imply lower net revenues for some units due to feedback loop from plant costs to market prices 2.Risk exposure to coal generation highly dependent on Regional generation mix Gas price level 3. Older coal plants more exposed to CO 2 risk than newer plants, a factor for environmental retrofit decisions

20 Advancing Energy Efficiency

29 Overview of California Climate Policy Activity

30 30 © 2006 Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. All rights reserved. California Climate Policy Activity Government policy actions Governor's Executive Order sets GHG mitigation targets State Senate and Governor announce deal for comprehensive cap on GHG emissions (AB 32) New long term (> 5 years) base-load requires performance standard equal to a CCGT (SB 1368) 33% Renewable Portfolio Standard by 2020 (PUC) EPRI California climate policy research Analysis of CA GHG mitigation targets Analysis of 3 existing economic studies

31 31 © 2006 Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. All rights reserved. California GHG LegislationKey Points Role of the Air Resources Board Rules, procedures, regulations, etc. unclear at present achieve maximum technologically feasible and cost- effective GHG reductions. Authorizes market-based compliance mechanism(s) Mandatory reporting of GHG emission sources Timing 6/30/2007 ARB to publish list of early actions… By 1/1/2011 ARB shall adopt regulations Become effective 1/1/2012

32 32 © 2006 Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. All rights reserved. California GHG LegislationKey Points Economic impact unclear at present State has yet to work out details of implementation Supporters say it wont harm business Provision for safety valve Governor has authority to delay emission-cap by up to one year in an emergency New Energy Investments Face Uncertainty Any project will face undefined restrictions/costs as reductions, measures and limits not known until 2011 Financing these projects may be very difficult

33 33 © 2006 Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. All rights reserved. EPRI Examining California GHG Policies Independent analysis of economic costs and benefits Funded by Southern California Edison Project duration-- January June 2007 EPRI has provided status reports to SCE and other interested organizations Project results will be provided to the public Advisory Committee provides peer-review Report will be released November 2006

34 34 © 2006 Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. All rights reserved. EPRI Evaluation of Previous Economic Studies Previous research indicated benefits for economy Economic analysis by the Climate Action Team Independent economic analysis by Center for Clean Air Policy (CCAP) Third report by UC Berkeley Climate Change Center All three studies based on bottom-up analysis of many separate policy measures Bottom-up analyses displays systematic optimistic bias about the economic costs Undergoing peer-review and should be widely available in near future

35 35 © 2006 Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. All rights reserved. California climate activities important for rest of country May lead to other state/regional/national proposals Getting rules right in California will be helpful for subsequent proposals in other states or nationally Remember deregulation … Issues are complex; unintended consequences costly Any proposed government actions (ARB) should be carefully examined prior to implementation: -What are the impacts on electric system? economy? -How do you constrain electricity imports? -Can technology meet the pace of regulations? Closing Thoughts
