A stochastic fuel switching model for electricity prices
This paper develops and applies a novel electricity price model. We reproduce the merit order of a thermal-dominated electricity system by establishing a non-linear dependency of wholesale electricity prices on the prices of fuels (coal and natural gas) and of CO2 emission allowances. The coefficients are estimated using a Markov Switching Regression.
