    Abstract

    Este trabajo analiza la estabilidad de la varianza de los precios de electricidad en el mercado español durante el periodo 1998-2009, poniendo de manifiesto un declive significativo de variabilidad a partir de 2007. Esta reducción es contemporánea con la implementación de mecanismos de negociación que han contribuido a desarrollar la liquidez de la contratación a plazo en el mercado y que tenían como meta principal mejorar la eficiencia competitiva en la formación de precios. La evidencia en este artículo muestra que este tipo de mejoras de la organización en el mercado podrían tener beneficios adicionales para el consumidor final a través de una mayor estabilidad de precios. In this paper, we analyze the stability of the unconditional variance of the electricity prices of the Spanish Power Pool in the period 1998-2009. We report the existence of a significant reduction that started in 2007 and that can be related to the implementation of different instruments aimed to improve the global liquidity in the market. The evidence shows that this kind of changes in the market organization might have additional benefits for the final consumer across a major price stability.
