Electricity markets are structurally different to othercommodities, and the real-time dynamic balancing of the electricitynetwork involves many external factors. Because of this, it is nota simple matter to transfer conventional models of financial timeseries analysis to wholesale electricity prices.

The rationale for this compilation of chapters frominternational authors is, therefore, to provide econometricanalysis of wholesale power markets around the world, to givegreater understanding of their particular characteristics, and toassess the applicability of various methods of price modelling.

Researchers and professionals in this sector will find the bookan invaluable guide to the most important state-of-the-artmodelling techniques which are converging to define the specialapproaches necessary for unravelling and forecasting the behaviourof electricity prices. It is a high-quality synthesis of the workof financial engineering, industrial economics and power systemsanalysis, as they relate to the behaviour of competitiveelectricity markets.
