Thisreport deals with the specific investment risks in electricity generation. This paper discusses the problems associated with energy investments in general and focus on the additional or changing risks resulting from electricity market liberalisation. The focus is on 1) risks under the control of the electricity company, and on 2) market risks, such as the risk of price changes. Ultimately, some of the approaches and strategies that enable electricity producers to counter or mitigate these risks are discussed.
