Plugging Into Energy Market Diversity

  title={Plugging Into Energy Market Diversity},
  author={Asfandyar Qureshi},
In North America, electricity prices exhibit both temporal and geographic variation—the later exists due to regional demand differences, transmission inefficiencies and generation diversity. Using historical market data, we characterize the variation and argue that existing distributed systems should be able to exploit it for significant economic gains. We consider pricing in cloud computing systems, and also use simulation to estimate the advantage of dynamically shuffling computation between… CONTINUE READING
