We examine problems in managing a mix of power plants generating electricity, using optimization modeling. The modeling includes definition of goals, such as minimizing carbon footprints, maximizing revenue, or reducing risk of blackouts. We discuss how to exploit structural properties of nonsmooth objective functions.
