Energy markets are one of the fastest growing and most complex sectors. From the basic role that oil has in the global economy, to the essential services that gas and electricity provide, energy is an area of geopolitical concern as well as financial activities. The Journal of Energy Markets serves as a major research outlet for new empirical and model-based work in this sector, and publishes original papers on the evolution and behaviour of electricity, gas, oil, carbon and other energy markets, both wholesale and retail.
The Journal of Energy Markets considers submissions in the form of research papers on the following, but not limited to, topics:
- Econometric analyses of prices, volatilities and across particular energy markets
- Model-based simulation of price and investment behaviour
- Theoretical and applied analyses of energy derivatives
- High frequency nonlinear models of price formation
- Longer-term geo-political analyses of energy market globalization
- Forward curve and risk premia
- Strategic behaviour by companies
- Financial aspects of new investment
- Relationship of energy and carbon markets to climate change policies
- Renewable energy financing and policy analysis

One-week-ahead electricity price forecasting using weather forecasts, and its application to arbitrage in the forward market: an empirical study of the Japan Electric Power Exchange
This paper constructs a model using weekly weather forecasts for forecasting week-ahead average electricity prices and applies it to an arbitrage strategy in the forward market.
Impact of changes in the global environment on price differentials between the US crude oil spot markets for the periods before and after 2008–9
This paper uses threshold cointegration to examine price differentials between crude oil spot markets in the US for the periods before (2000–2007) and after (2010–17) the advent of major technological and other changes impacting the oil sector.
A fractional Brownian–Hawkes model for the Italian electricity spot market: estimation and forecasting
This paper proposes a new model for the description and forecast of gross prices of electricity in the liberalized Italian energy market via an additive two-factor model.
This paper introduces two models: the first analyzes the impacts of global economic policy uncertainty, gold prices and three-month US Treasury bill rates on oil prices between 1997 and 2020, and the second examines the effects of oil prices and US…
