Modeling natural gas prices as a random walk: The advantages for generation planning

1 Citation (Scopus)

Abstract

Random walk modeling allows decision makers to evaluate risk mitigation strategies. Easily constructed, the random walk provides probability information that long-term fuel forecasts do not. This is vital to meeting the ratepayers' need for low-cost power, the shareholders' financial objectives, and the regulators' desire for straightforward information.
