Special Issue in Forecasting: Forecasting Prices in Power Markets
We are pleased to call for papers for a Special Issue on “Uncertainties and Risk Management in Competitive Energy Markets”.
In recent years, the quantitative methods for analyzing energy systems have improved substantially. This allows for better understanding and modeling of the uncertainty and risk in energy markets, which includes the long-term perspective for decision making as investment projects, but also short-term problems concerning operational management of uncertainties. Due to the continuing expansion of renewable energy supply, such as storage facilities, the relevance of incorporating uncertainties and risk appropriately into energy system models will increase substantially. New and innovative approaches for describing uncertainty-related aspects of energy systems and related problems are welcome in this Special Issue.
This Special Issue is dedicated to all areas of energy markets, including electricity, heat, cooling, and mobility.
The main topics of interest for this Special Issue include but are not limited to:
- Risk measurement and management for energy systems;
- Energy forecasting and modeling;
- Energy innovations and energy markets;
- Energy policies and economic impact;
- Fluctuation of renewables and load flows;
- Energy data and digitization;
- Stochastic processes in energy;
- Financing energy infrastructure;
- Regulation and regulatory risk;
- Valuation of physical assets.
