This study explores the potential effects of real-time electricity pricing on the operations of Saudi Arabia’s power generation sector. The Kingdom currently sets fuel prices for power utilities at levels that suppress the costs of power generation. However, this analysis provides insights into the effects of a real-time electricity pricing scheme in the context of liberalized fuel prices.
