Marginal Cost Working Group: 2007 Spring Conference

Savannah, Georgia
26 March 2007 - 28 March 2007
Hosted By: Georgia Power

NERA's Marginal Cost Working Group (MCWG) provides an invaluable opportunity for individuals from member electric and gas utilities to convene twice a year to share research and ideas on utility costing, pricing, planning, retail access, and regulatory reform. Membership in MCWG is especially useful as the industry addresses the need for improved energy efficiency through rate and other demand-response mechanisms. These gatherings create a forum for discussion, allowing members to exchange information and keep pace with industry developments from around the globe. Hundreds of utility staff members from dozens of companies have participated in the MCWG.

Directed by NERA Special Consultant Dr. Hethie Parmesano, MCWG meets twice a year. The agenda for the Spring 2007 meeting in Savannah, Georgia included the following topics:

  • Smart Meters
  • Critical Peak Pricing
  • Distribution Costs
  • Street Lighting Rates
  • Transmission Rate Design for Independent System Operators
  • Capacity Markets
  • Decoupling Costs and Revenues
  • Recovery of Renewable Portfolio Standard Costs
  • Marginal Cost Rate Design
  • Weather Normalization
  • Time-Differentiated Fuel Adjustment Clause
