Recent sweeping changes to the way in which the electricity supply industry is run are reflected in this new treatment of power economics and planning. Berrie's 1983 Power system economics (now out of print) was well received as a rare and lucid insight into this complex area; his new book replaces and updates it with additional consideration of issues such as short-term programmes, the effect of the markets, the use of spot or real-time pricing, consumer and demand response, privatisation, and conservation and environmental maintenance.
World outlook; electricity sector assessment; demand forecasting, management and reliability; efficiency, conservation and the environment; public versus private ownership; pricing; development programmes; technology transfer; developing countries; where to go from here.
