This study uses the Enelytix power market modeling software in a novel way to simulate 65 different scenarios in the PJM wholesale electricity market with a wide range of carbon control policies, deriving 20 years of cost, carbon emission, and fuel mix trends for each. Scenarios are compared against a completely “hands-off” base case in which all policies related to carbon emissions are eliminated. The study distinguishes between hard and soft costs, discounted to present value, with the latter covering tax revenue, before considering business implications and engineering limitations of the resulting trends.
