ERI develops strategic plans for the current and future utilization
of power plants by assessing their competitive position and
investment requirements for continued operation under alternative
market and environmental conditions.
- Assessment of
Fossil Energy Options to Repower Nuclear Plants. ERI assessed
the fuel supply infrastructure required to convert 47 nuclear
power plants scheduled for relicensing through 2015 to
either natural gas or coal. ERI analyzed the logistics
and deliverability of the fuel supply infrastructure associated
with using natural gas and/or coal at each site.
- Outlook for U.S.
Coal-Based Power Production. ERI identified the key factors
affecting the direction of the U.S. coal-based power market
and the strategies of major U.S. coal-based power companies
to maintain and expand coal use. ERI provided case studies
of three companies and examined the role of various coal-based
ERI investigates and
assesses international markets to identify opportunities
for development by the electric power industry, by analyzing
relevant economic, regulatory, technological and geopolitical
- Market Analysis
for Advanced Turbine Systems. ERI analyzed the potential markets
for advanced turbine systems (5-15 MW) in the U.S. and
provided an assessment of the competition and barriers
to their use. ERI analyzed the potential industrial and
utility markets, life-cycle competitiveness of these systems,
and the appropriate turbine size suitable for the identified
- U.S. Opportunities
in Brazilian Coal and Power Markets. ERI provided a comprehensive
review of changes taking place in Brazil’s power
industry. ERI also identified opportunities and barriers
to foreign (U.S.) participation in its power program by
examining key factors and experience. ERI recommended actions
to overcome the barriers and to increase investment.
and Contractual Issues
ERI assesses financing
and contractual options and strategies for power projects.
- Resource Guide
to Project Financing. ERI developed a comprehensive guide
to multilateral, national export-credit and other sources
of power project financing and guarantees. The guide included
detailed summaries of loan, guarantee, insurance, policy
and performance (including environmental) requirements
- Analysis of Power
Purchase Agreements. ERI identified the effect of U.S.
wholesale electricity competition on the provisions of
Power Purchase Agreements, across a selection of fuels,
technologies and plants. ERI also identified the reasons,
effects and implications of the contractual changes.
