Financing Solar Repowering and the Quantification of External Benefits

Jules H. Kamin and J. Clair Ellis

Year: 1982
Volume: Volume 3
Number: Number 2
DOI: 10.5547/ISSN0195-6574-EJ-Vol3-No2-9
View Abstract

Abstract:
Encouragement of investment in domestic energy projects capable of displacing imported petroleum is a central objective of U.S. energy policy. Private industry will be the primary vehicle for developing improvements in efficiency of new technologies, reducing costs to levels competitive with conventional technologies, and building the required industrial infrastructure.



An Econometric Analysis of Energy Financing

John B. Guerard, Jr. and Stephen G. Buell

Year: 1989
Volume: Volume 10
Number: Number 2
DOI: 10.5547/ISSN0195-6574-EJ-Vol10-No2-5
View Abstract

Abstract:
This study examines the interdependencies of the dividend, investment, liquidity, and financing decisions of public utility firms during the 1974-1979 period and develops a multiple-criteria financial planning model of a public utility firm. The evidence on the perfect markets hypothesis that the dividend, investment, and new debt decisions of firms are interdependent is mixed. The perfect markets hypothesis is tested using a sample of public utility firms because utility firms pay very high dividends (relative to stock prices) and engage in large capital expenditures (relative to assets) compared with manufacturing firms.



Chapter 4 - Federal Regulation of Decommissioning Economics

Robert Wood

Year: 1991
Volume: Volume 12
Number: Special Issue
DOI: 10.5547/ISSN0195-6574-EJ-Vol12-NoSI-4
View Abstract

Abstract:
As we move deeply into the new territory of large-scale decommissioning, countries around the world are looking to the United States for guidance and experience in establishing their own approaches. In the U.S., the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is the lead agency responsible for public health and safety issues linked to commercial nuclear power. This responsibility includes assuring adequate funds for decommissioning. In this chapter, Robert Wood introduces us to the regulations and positions of the NRC regarding decommissioning financing. The issues include why the NRC chose external funding mechanisms, how the funds should be collected and invested, the relationship between the NRC and state agencies, and fund assurance in a variety of cases including possible accident and bankruptcy. While this discussion will serve as an overview of the most significant aspects of decommissioning financing, it also introduces us to other chapters which focus on the relationships of the NRC with the states and electric utility companies.



Financing Power: Impacts of Energy Policies in Changing Regulatory Environments

Nils May and Karsten Neuhoff

Year: 2021
Volume: Volume 42
Number: Number 4
DOI: 10.5547/01956574.42.4.nmay
View Abstract

Abstract:
Power systems with increasing shares of wind and solar power generation have higher capital costs and lower operational costs than power systems based on fossil fuels. This increases the importance of the financing costs for total system cost. We quantify how renewable energy support policies can affect the financing costs by addressing regulatory risk and facilitating hedging. We use interview data on wind power financing costs from the EU and model how long-term contracts signed between project developers and energy suppliers impact financing costs. Regression analysis of investors' financing costs and an analytical model of off-takers financing costs reveal that between the support policies, the costs of renewable energy deployment differ by around 30 percent, but can be significantly lower or higher, depending on the financial situation of energy suppliers.
