Abstract

El artículo considera las transacciones a plazo sobre electricidad que los agentes del mercado eléctrico en Colombia, en sus diferentes segmentos, hacen por medio de contratos forward, con el fin de asegurar el precio de compra/venta. El comportamiento aleatorio de los precios y las cantidades que se manejan de flujo eléctrico implican el sacrificio de alguno de los agentes, dependiendo del segmento —regulado, no-regulado o intermediación— en el que se realice la operación. Además, la prima que se paga en los intercambios comerciales con forwards está definida por las expectativas de los agentes y es un reflejo de su grado de aversión al riesgo, lo que involucra racionalidad financiera en el establecimiento de la misma, con el propósito de asegurar un precio sobre una cantidad incierta de electricidad a futuro. Así, resulta de mucha utilidad tener una medición de dicha expectativa, definida por el tipo de mercado en el cual se realiza el negocio. Energy power forward prices. Are forward prices rationally determined by agents in the Colombian market? This article considers fixed-terms transactions made by agents, in diverse segments of the Colombian energy power market, using forward contracts in order to secure buying/selling prices. The random behavior of prices and quantities, which is handled in the energy power flux, implies the sacrifice of agents according to the transaction segment (regulated, non-regulated or intermediary). In addition to this, the premium, which is paid in the commercial exchange with forwards, is defined by the agents’ expectations and is a reflection of their risk aversion level. This involves financial rationality in the establishment of the premium in order to secure a price on uncertain energy power quantity in the future. Thus, the measurement of such expectation becomes useful, as it is defined by the type of market in which the transaction is being made.
