About this event

I am going to present mainly correlations suggesting that the link between natural gas and electricity markets has become a lot stronger. This interdependence is driven by a distinct supply shift due to increases in natural gas production through the use of fracking and the adoption of renewable sources for power generation. Both developments taken together generate spatial and temporal variation in the first two moments of the natural gas price distribution that I am to exploit to study firm responses.
