Electricity market design

Peter Cramton
2017 Oxford review of economic policy  
Electricity markets are designed to provide reliable electricity at least cost to consumers.  ...  This spot market provides the basis for forward contracting, which enables participants to manage risk and improves bidding incentives in the spot market.  ...  The market has succeeded for 20 years, encouraging both wholesale and retail competition in a reliable electricity market.  ...

Competitive Electricity Markets [chapter]

Larry E. Ruff
1994 From Regulation to Competition: New frontiers in electricity markets  
market-driven electricity system was impossible and there was little theory to light the way.  ...  The message is that the future of competitive electricity systems lies in developing more rather than less sophisticated spot pricing systems and using the resulting prices to support efficient financial  ...  As discussed above, if both buyer and seller have access to the same physical spot market relatively simple financial contracts can take the place of more complex physical contracts.  ...

Demand response in electricity markets: A review

Qin Zhang, Juan Li
2012 2012 9th International Conference on the European Energy Market  
According to different reasons for triggering DR, DR programs in electricity markets are classified into two categories: price-based DR and incentive-based DR.  ...  With price signals and incentive mechanisms, DR is crucial to both power system reliability and market efficiency.  ...  Financial instruments can be used to design I/C contracts, e.g., the I/C contracts in which electricity suppliers buy into call option while customers sell out call option [64] , the I/C contracts in  ...

Interface Between Engineering and Market Operations in Restructured Electricity Systems

Hung-Po Chao, S.S. Oren, A. Papalexopoulos, D.J. Sobajic, R. Wilson
2005 Proceedings of the IEEE  
We examine the impact of wholesale markets on operations of the bulk power system and elaborate some basic implications of engineering practices for designs of wholesale markets.  ...  We outline ways that engineering practices developed in the era of vertically integrated utilities might be adapted to the wholesale markets introduced since restructuring began in 1998 in the United States  ...  for arbitrage and covered financially only by the opportunity to close out the position in the real-time market.  ...
