Monetizing these environmental impacts gives a clearer sense of the real price we currently pay for conventional electricity generation and use. S. electricity production cost $120 billion. That figure in fact underestimates the true costs, the report notes, because it does not include the costs of climate change or damage to ecosystems [19]. 56 million per plant. 49 million in annual damages per plant [19]. These are not theoretical costs but real costs—for water, health care, and premature deaths— borne directly by citizens.

Dynamic pricing is particularly valuable for cutting peak power demand. Analyzing a range of experiments, Brattle’s Ahmad Faruqui found that time-of-use rates cut peak demand by 3%–6% and critical peak pricing (CPP) cut peak demand by 13%–20%. When accompanied with enabling technologies, CPP cut peak demand by 27%–44% [10]. A number of studies have shown that customers respond to, and appreciate, time-of-use rates. PowerCentsDC—an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA)-funded pilot in the nation’s capital—ran from July 2008 through October 2009.

China and India both have more than 2150 of the large (mostly coal-fired) power plants in the region. 1 billion) and electricity production capacity (160 GW). The country also has most of the substations in the region (about 17,500 out of about 22,000 in total). Pakistan and Bangladesh are other large countries of South Asia neighboring India, together having 315 million residents, but only about 32 GW of capacity. 3 billion­ live in China. China accounts for about one-half of this regions electricity production capacity­ and one-half of the power delivery infrastructure.
