  In , NREL published the 4th edition, presenting, among other things, data on the U.S. electricity supply. The series of datasets included are: primary and delivered energy ( - ); electricity overview ( - ); consumption of fossil fuels by electric generators ( - ); electric power sector energy consumption ( -   This figure is the simple average of the price advantage of the three utilities. U.S. Energy Information Administration, “Federal Financial Interventions and Subsidies in Energy Markets @article{osti_, title = {Ancillary-service costs for 12 US electric utilities}, author = {Kirby, B and Hirst, E}, abstractNote = {Ancillary services are those functions performed by electrical generating, transmission, system-control, and distribution-system equipment and people to support the basic services of generating capacity, energy supply, and power delivery. Net Generating Station Capability The total capacity of a generating facility to produce power, less the amount it needs for its own uses. Nominal Voltage Rating Voltage standards set by U.S. electrical equipment manufacturers and electric utilities to ensure that equipment is designed for the voltage range encountered in actual use.

  Peter Fox-Penner discussed this at length in his book Smart Power: Climate Change, the Smart Grid, and the Future of Electric Utilities (Island Press, ). Models are also discussed more. @article{osti_, title = {Peak-load pricing: European lessons for US energy policy}, author = {Mitchell, B M and Manning, Jr, W G and Acton, J P}, abstractNote = {Since the /74 oil embargo, critics have attacked the traditional methods of pricing electricity and have called for fundamental revisions in the structure of electricity rates.
