Latest Insights from RAP Experts
冬夏季的用电高峰时常让电力系统面临供应不足的风险。除却发电机组的基本调峰外，利用分时电价引导用户错峰用电通常是一种经济的选择。但在某些情况下，静态的分时电价可能无法灵活应对突发状况。相比之下，实时电价作为更“智能”的定价方式，通过揭示系统当前的供需和运行状况，能够及时反映系统在小时和分钟内的变化，使消费者得以根据实际的发电成本做出相应的用电调整。而在消费者方面，大型用户在管理和控制用电方面具有更高的灵活性，更容易适应实时电价机制。 本文简单概括了实时电价的运作方式，并参考北美的实践经验，提出在现有分时电价的基础上，为有管控和调节用电能力的大型用户增设实时电价选项的建议，并建议通过风险对冲等策略，提高这些用户管控价格波动风险的能力。 本文首刊于《南方能源观察》（2023年12月3日）… Read More +
