I.  OVERVIEW 
 
Under  the  Task  Order  –  Private  Participation  in  Clean  Energy  Development, 
Management  and  Operations  --  CORE  International  designed  and  delivered 
twice a course on “Advanced Electricity Market - Southern African Power Pool”  
during  the  period  28  October  –  1  November  &  4  November  –  8  November,  in 
Durban, South Africa.  The following are the highlights of the two activities: 
 
•   The first course was opened and welcomed by Mr. Lovemore Bingandadi, 
Infrastructure   Advisor,   USAID   Regional   Center   for   Southern   Africa 
Gaborone, Botswana, and Dr. Donald I. Hertzmark, Senior Energy Market 
Development  Expert  and  COP,  SAPP  Energy  Market  Services  Training, 
CORE International, Inc.  
 
•   The  second  course  was  opened  and  welcomed  by  Dr.  Kevin  War, 
Program  Analyst,  Energy  Division,  EGAT,  U.S.  Agency  for  International 
Development, and Dr. Donald I. Hertzmark. 
 
•   In  the  first  course  there  were  a  total  of  18  participants  from  all  SAPP 
member  countries,  coming  mainly  from  the  regulatory  authorities,  SAPP 
itself,  and  member  utilities.    In  the  second  were  another  19  participants 
from SAPP member power utilities.  The attending participants were very 
active  and  there  was  considerable  discussion  among  the  participants  on 
various issues involved in electricity trading, short and long term markets, 
market  clearing,  as  well  as  trading  costs  and  integration  of  trading 
financial results.   
 
•   Each   of   the   participants   made   valuable   contributions   during   the 
discussions  of  various  course  modules.    Not  only  were  the  participants 
expected to work through the notebooks and other course materials; they 
were also required to engage in the three exercises discussed below. 
 
•   During  each  course  the  participants  were  engaged  in  three  "Exercises" 
that were designed by CORE Team.  The first exercise focused on ‘Spot 
Market  Clearing’.    The  participants  were  given  a  role  as  one  of  the 
participants  in  a  power  pool  system,  complete  with  a  set  of  power 
generation assets (using different fuels) and sales contracts.  Using data 
given  to  them  regarding  the  “next  day’s  demand  for  electricity”  the 
participants  were  required  to  buy  and  sell  electricity  so  as  to  meet  their 
contractual  requirements  while  covering  costs  of  generation  and  trading.  
This exercise was intended to demonstrate (i) what is a spot market, (ii) 
how are wholesale prices established, and (iii) what contract instruments 
exist for spot market trading.

The  second  exercise  focused  on  ‘Long-term  Market  Clearing’.    In  this 
exercise  the  participants  were  again  put  into  the  role  of  one  of  the  pool 
electricity suppliers discussed above.  However, this time each teams was 
required  to  establish  a  plan  for  meeting  future  spot  and  contractual 
demands  for  electricity  by  using  existing  assets.    The  lessons  of  this 
exercise centered on (i) what is the long term market, (ii) how are future 
prices  established,  (iii)  how  can  a  mixture  of  investment  and  trading 
produce a least-cost supply mix, and (iv) what contract instruments exist 
for long-term market trading.   
 
A  third  exercise  focused  on  ‘P&L-Driven  Trading’.    In  this  exercise  the 
participants  experienced  (i)  trading  rules  for  transaction  control,  and  (ii) 
Impact  of  rules  on  profitability  of  generation  assets.    This  exercise  was 
based on the results of exercise 2. 
 
The  participants  were  actively  engaged  during  all  these  exercises.  
Participants presented exercise summaries at the end of each exercise.   
 
 
The  two  courses  generated  a  considerable  amount  of  discussion  among  the 
participants.    First,  the  participants   enhanced   their   knowledge   about   the 
complexities  inherent  in  exploiting  electricity  trading  and  markets.    Second,  the 
participants  were  given  examples  of  how  other  countries  had  attempted  to 
address  some  of  the  very  issues  faced  by  SAPP.    Third,  the  participants  were 
given  access  to  materials  detailing  the  strengths  and  weaknesses  of  various 
approaches to setting prices and clearing markets.  Fourth, the participants were 
able  to  see  for  themselves  the  intricacies  involved  in  combining  trading  and 
investment strategies in the context of limited resources and time.  Through the 
exercises, the participants gained hands-on experience in the process of making 
bids and trading off current and future incomes and costs.  The three exercises 
were   designed   based   on   a   SAPP   market   situation   which   is   developing 
progressively.

II.  KEY INSIGHTS AND ISSUES 
 
The  SAPP  system  is  a  dynamic  and  evolving  one.    While  the  current  trading 
arrangements occur largely outside the formal SAPP mechanisms, an increasing 
volume of trade has been brought into the formal trading process of the SAPP 
Control  Centre  in  Harare,  Zimbabwe.    In  order  for  these  efforts  to  deepen  the 
SAPP  trading  arrangements  to  succeed,  the  members  will  need  to  understand 
and  participate  in  spot  and  short  term  markets  that  trade  capacity  as  well  as 
energy. 
 
The  SAPP  Course  on  Advanced  Electricity  markets  was  intended  to  furnish 
participants  with  an  understanding  of  the  basic  elements  of  a  transition  from 
occasional  energy  trades  to  a  more  fully  developed  market  in  both  energy  and 
capacity.  Along the way, it is essential to show the link between trading activities 
and system expansion or investment activities. 
 
Many of the participants in the two courses have had relatively little experience in 
system planning and investment policy.  In a trade-dependent organization, the 
traders  will  need  to  be  integrated  in  their  approaches  and  goals  with  other 
investment activities in generation and transmission. 
 
Three issues for near term consideration have emerged from the exercises used 
in this course.  These are: 
 
1.  Provision of a framework for trading activities; 
2.  Need for a consistent way to evaluate future investment options; and 
3.  Inclusion  of  dispatch  and  transmission  system  management  in  SAPP 
training and TA activities. 
  
Some  issues  emerged  relative  to  the  conduct  of  the  course  itself  and  should 
SAPP  wish  to  conduct  further  iterations  of  this  course,  the  following  changes 
might be expected: 
 
1.  Less history of SAPP trading and institutions (needed for only a subset of 
participants and implemented in second Course); 
2.  More  time  spent  on  spot  market  trading  and  bulletin  board  for  tracking 
trades; 
3.  “Keeping Score” of gains and losses in trading; 
4.  Better  project  evaluation  framework  for  investments  (probably  a  distinct 
course  in  the  future,  rather  than  an  element  of  the  trading  course)  with 
more  explicit  links  to  least  cost  expansion  programs,  and  more  specific 
consideration of financial and other constraints on investment activities.

III.  POTENTIAL FOLLOW UP RECOMMENDATIONS 
 
 
In both lectures and exercises, this Course emphasized the interconnectedness 
of trading and investment in SAPP.  This message will now need to be carried to 
a  policy-making  level,  given  the  control  over  investment  activities  exercised  by 
regulatory and political officials in each country. 
 
With this link in mind, a suggested next step for SAPP is a short version of this 
Course,  one  aimed  at  senior  executives,  regulators  and  policy-makers.    This 
activity was requested by SAPP Control Centre personnel during the first course 
in Durban.  The short course, intended to be competed over a two-day period, 
will stress the key issues and lessons-learned in the Advanced Markets Courses 
just completed.  The proposed outline of the short course is as follows: 
 
Proposed Outline for Executive Course on Advanced Electricity Market 
 
1.  Electricity pool trading – quarter day 
•   Evolution 
•   Current status 
•   Successes and failures 
•   Role of SAPP 
2.  Essentials of trading – quarter day 
3.  Trading exercise – full day 
•   Bulletin boards 
•   Keeping score 
4.  Trading and investing – quarter day 
•   Linking long and short term markets 
•   Constraints on optimal policies 
5.  Role of regulation and policy in trading and investment activities – quarter 
day 
 
Other findings and observations regarding the status of SAPP short term trading 
include the following issues: 
 
1.  SAPP  trading  software  –  are  there  adaptations  of  existing  commercial 
software  that  can  work  for  SAPP?    e.g.,  Internet  Explorer  “Auction 
manager” functions, combined with bulletin board notifications from SAPP 
Control Centre. 
 
2.  Long  term  investment  planning  –  there  is  a  clear  need  to  integrate 
financial,   trading,   resource   and   other   considerations   into   system 
expansion plans – is there a plan for SAPP to address this matter?

3.  Communications  and  trading  efficacy  –  what  is  the  status  of  improved 
communications links among the SAPP members? 
 
With  regard  to  future  TA  and  other  activities,  the  consultants  have  found  that 
hands-on activities continue to be the best complement to well-designed lecture 
courses.  To that end, CORE recommends the following additional activities for 
SAPP Operations and Trading Professionals: 
 
1.  TA to create bulletin board front end at SAPP side for short term market 
trades  –  this  would  involve  a  bit  of  programming,  using  existing  internet 
auction and trading software as a basis.  CORE recommends that SAPP 
Control  Centre  personnel  meet  with  managers  at  successful  internet-
based trading and auction businesses to obtain ideas for a software and 
business  model.    The  customer-side  software  already  exists  as  a 
component of the Microsoft Internet Explorer program. 
 
2.  A course that will integrate trading and planning activities to demonstrate 
the  potential  gains  of  new  types  and  tenors  of  trades.    One  option  is  to 
make use of current planning software (probably WASP III or WASP IV) 
and  integrate  such  existing  programs  with  new  system  dispatch  and 
management  software  (e.g.,  GT  Max),  that  will  enable  operations  and 
trading people to see trading, contracts and investments in one integrated 
view,  that  could  include  transmission  system  considerations.    Using  this 
approach  CORE  would  propose  a  course  based  on  teaching  the  SAPP 
members the essentials of investment analysis in the context of an open 
trading  system.    This  course  could  also  serve  to  implement  the  ancillary 
services pricing proposals created under an existing TA/training activity. 
 
3.  A short TA and training course on how to use improved communications 
links  and  trading  software  (developed  in  (1)).  This  course  would  assist 
SAPP  in  developing  trading  rules  and  conventions  appropriate  to  a  real-
time operational awareness and control and would prepare the members 
for  implementation  of  new  trading  options  and  alternatives  within  the 
SAPP system.
