Deregulated Wholesale Electricity Prices in Europe

No 20061001, Working Papers from Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca, Dipartimento di Statistica

Abstract: This paper analyses the interdependencies existing in the European electricity prices. The results of a multivariate dynamic analysis of weekly median prices reveal the presence of strong integration (but not perfect integration) among the markets considered in the sample and the existence of a common trend among electricity prices and oil prices. This implies that there are no long-run arbitrage opportunities. The latter result appears to be relevant also in the context of the discussion of efficient hedging instruments to be used by medium-long term investors.
