Optimizing electricity distribution using two-stage integer recourse models
Haneveld, Willem K. Klein

We consider two planning problems faced by an electricity distributor. Electricity can be obtained both from power plants and small generators such as hospitals and greenhouses, whereas the future demand for electricity is uncertain. The price of electricity obtained from the power plants depends on quota that are to be determined in a yearly contract, whereas the (given) contracts with small generators contain various constraints on switching them on or off.
