This seminar begins by explaining operating heat rates, economic heat rates, spark spreads, market implied heat rates, negotiated heat rates, and how to convert natural gas/electricty prices and quantities into equivalent units. The fundamentals of tolling deals and power purchase agreements ("PPAs") are then addressed.
After a 1/2 hour break the training program will continue and introduce the powerful technique of heat-rate-linked power transactions which can be used in many ways. For example, heat rate structres can be used to sell solar and wind power under PPAs; financially hedge electricity price risk with liquid natural gas financial products; mimic physical generating assets; and potentially structure profitable arbitrage transactions between the natural gas and electric power markets.
