SDDP modelling of carbon dioxide emissions from electricity generation

Publication date:  November 2008
Publication reference number:  CR 80

The report prepared by Dr Tom Halliburton of Energy Modeling Consultants Ltd was commissioned by the Ministry for the Environment for the SEIP TAG Electricity Issues Sub-group. The analysis involved modelling future electricity system performance in New Zealand assuming a range of CO2 prices. The effects on short run marginal cost (SRMC) and the extent to which emissions costs pass through into SRMC were also examined.
