According to the draft of the modified Electricity Law submitted by the Executive Yuan to the Legislative Yuan for review, the redesigned power market structure will be totally opened for competition, the power sector is unbundled into generation, transmission and distribution, and the independent system operator (ISO) will be established to secure any participants to fairly access the transmission and distribution network. Not only the Taiwan Power Company (Taipower) could be a vertically-integrated utility as what it is now, but also private enterprises could enter any sectors. Those who are retailers are responsible for the scheduling of power generation, which means all the electricity transactions are done by the way of bilateral contracts. However, the scheme of power pool was proposed too as an alternative in the Executive Yuan version. Under the arrangement, all the generation companies and distribution companies should sell or buy electricity in power pool, and payments and charges are based on system marginal price (SMP). Different reform models have different impacts on Taipower. This study is to analyze the influence on different pricings of both bilateral contracts and SMP to Taipower.
