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

The goal of this paper is twofold: (1) to describe the new outlook of LNG markets, which has become more and more spot-centric, with Asian LNG futures bringing transparency to spot and forward prices; and (2) to address the valuation of the rerouting…
The authors investigate the performance of various value-at-risk (VaR) models in the context of the highly volatile Nordic power futures market, examining whether simple averages of models provide better results than the individual models themselves.
Decomposing supply shocks in the US electricity industry: evidence from a time-varying Bayesian panel vector autoregression model
This paper investigates spillovers between electricity supply shocks and US growth, using monthly data from forty-eight US states from January 2001 to September 2016, and employs a novel strategy for electricity supply shocks based on a time-varying…
This paper examines the dynamics and spillover behavior between time-varying optimal weights and hedge ratios in order to analyze optimal volatility allocation spillover and characteristic structure.
This paper studies the optimal extraction and taxation of nonrenewable natural resources.
International announcements and West Texas Intermediate crude oil futures: a case study on the 2008 global financial crisis
The authors examine the impact of international monetary policy and professionals' announcements on West Texas Intermediate crude oil futures.
Carbon pricing paths to a greener future, and potential roadblocks to public companies’ creditworthiness
In this paper, the authors introduce a valuation-based approach to estimate how energy transition risk may impact the creditworthiness of public companies globally within the next thirty years.
This paper provides an alternative way to introduce the stylized facts on electricity futures.
The impact of end-user market integration and the smart grid on electricity retailers in the Nordic region
With the help of a mixed complementarity problem formulation that describes a simplified market setting with two competing retailers, this paper analyzes the impact of the pending market changes on electricity retailers’ price markup and profit.
Estimating marginal effects of key factors that influence wholesale electricity demand and price distributions in Texas via quantile variable selection methods
Using a large data set from the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, this study uses quantile regressions and attendant variable selection methods to choose the most important factors that influence demand and price distributions; subsequently, the…
A simulation-based model for optimal demand response load shifting: a case study for the Texas power market
This paper describes a case study of analyzing DR load-shifting strategies for a retail electric provider for the Texas (ERCOT) market using a Monte Carlo simulation with stochastic loads and settlement prices.
This study focuses on the analysis of long-run and short-run relationships between Brent crude oil spot and futures prices during the first Gulf War (1990–91) and the global financial crisis.
This paper analyzes the relationship between debt and the production decisions of companies active in the exploration and production of oil and gas in the United States.
This paper presents an empirical analysis of how power shocks resulting from intermittent renewables affect the forecast error of the forward premium in German electricity markets.
A new approach to evaluating the cost-efficiency of complex hedging strategies: an application to electricity price–volume quanto contracts
In this paper, the authors propose a new hedging assessment model, the economic value of the incremental expected shortfall (EVIES), from a cost-efficiency perspective.
Managing supply chain risk through take-or-pay gas contracts in the presence of buyers’ storage facilities
In this paper, the authors study the enhanced value of a take-or-pay gas contract from a buyer’s perspective in the presence of spot market trading and local storage capability.
This paper is the prologue for our special issue on Blockchain-enabled Energy Markets.
In this paper, the simulated environment of a hierarchical energy trading market using Ethereum’s smartcontract technology is created as a proof-of-concept of using blockchain technology in energy trading.
Community energy retail tariffs in Singapore: opportunities for peer-to-peer and time-of-use versus vertically integrated tariffs
In this paper, an electricity market is simulated using an iterative double-auction algorithm that resolves a social welfare optimization problem based on the Kelly auction mechanism. It is adapted to the case of Singapore.
