The purpose of this course is to provide students with an overview of both the technical aspects of energy markets (generation, demand, constraints, market organization) as well as the most commonly used price models for pricing energy derivatives.
Attention is given to specific energy derivatives (Swing options and powerplants) and computational methods needed are detailed.
Students must be enrolled in courses Economics and Geopolitics of Energy, Derivatives Pricing & Stochastic Calculus 2, and have past Financial Derivatives, and Derivative Pricing & Stochastic Calculus 1
