The NCAER Gas Price Pooling Study captures the macroeconomic impact of the increased power generation and its multiplier effects as a result of greater availability of gas, as well as the total costs of such a policy in the form of subsidies and revenue losses to other sectors. The net benefits are analysed under different scenarios, including plants operating at 30% PLF, 40% PLF and 50% PLF, and with and without the availability of domestic gas supplies.
