Beginning with a comprehensive overview of energy futures, energy derivatives, and power markets around the world and their price drivers, the book goes on to explore specific energy risk management tools including coverage of the use of technical analysis in energy markets, creation and transfer of price risk in European energy markets, and the use of energy options to hedge risk. The reference closes with chapters on the importance of risk management software, deal capture, stress testing, and mark to market; energy hedging in Asian markets; trading electricity options; and weather risk management strategies.
