The great elector by Derek McKay ( Book )

"Frederick William, the 'Great Elector' of Brandenburg (1640-88) was the founder of Prussia, itself the forerunner of the united Germany of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries." "In 1640 the Great Elector inherited a minor territory devastated by the Thirty Years War. He restored its fortunes, won its independence and built a powerful, extended state, centred on Berlin. By the 1670s and 1680s he was successful enough to become a major player in the wars of Louis XIV. At his death in 1688, Frederick William was virtually an absolute monarch, and his Brandenburg and other possessions - shortly to be reinvented as the kingdom of Prussia - were second only to Austria in the German lands."

Gathering information on costs of service : some basic considerations for implementation of PURPA by Jan Paul Acton ( Book )
3 editions published between 1971 and 1979 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 (PURPA) requires that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission collect various data on costs of service from utilities. The exact methodology of collection was left largely up to FERC. In this paper we make some specific recommendations on the way this data collection activity should be arranged. In view of the costs of collecting, storing, and disseminating large amounts of data, we recommend that only demonstratably useful data is collected. Further, FERC should consider sampling techniques in order that unnecessary costs are not imposed on utilities. In addition, the possibility of synchronizing these data collection activities with ordinary rate hearings should not be overlooked. We recommend that careful consideration be given to the need for collecting much of the traditional accounting cost categories. The intent of PURPA in Sec. 115 (a)(2) seems to definitely emphasize the need for economically based marginal costs information. Marginal cost information is difficult to collect in a standardized form and careful analysis of the methodology and accuracy of the collected data will be required. It is this difficulty that makes collection during regulatory hearings attractive as the assumptions behind the cost measurements can be scrutinized. Finally there would seem to be good reason for FERC to consider collecting interchange data that is consistent with the other data so that bulk power rates can also be analysed

Quantitative aspects of industrial use of electricity under time-of-use rates in France, England, and Wales by Jan Paul Acton ( Book )
1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Examines the responses of time-of-use (TOU) electricity rates by large industrial and commercial customers in France, England, and Wales. The report analyzes quantitatively the daily and seasonal patterns of electricity use for a sample of customers who have faced TOU rates for 10 to 20 years. Some of the conclusions drawn are: TOU prices have an effect on customers' loads by almost any measure applied; industry-specific patterns of adjustment appear to be consistent with the industrial processes involved; and firms possessing self-generating capability make added adjustments in their daily loads by reducing peak and shoulder period use and increasing off-period electricity consumption. Two major policy implications for the United States are suggested: First, although on average there is clear evidence of response to TOU rates, considerable variability remains from firm to firm and from industry to industry. Second, offering optional rates allows a firm to select the most advantageous rate for the pattern of consumption the firm is willing to achieve
