Abstract

Este trabajo describe las principales características generales de las subastas de capacidad virtual y las particularidades de su aplicación al mercado español como emisiones primarias de energía. Se analizan los resultados de la valoración de los precios de las opciones proporcionados por las subastas, de las cuales se realizaron siete ediciones. La evidencia empírica sugiere que en los precios de las opciones se están incorporando valores temporales negativos, lo cual es inconsistente con los modelos de valoración de opciones conocidos. This paper describes the main characteristics of the virtual power plant auctions and their applications to the Spanish energy market, known as primary energy emissions. The auction prices resulting from the seven auction processes available are analyzed from the point of view of the option pricing theory. The empirical evidence suggests that the option prices implied in the auction’s results include negative time values, which is inconsistent with the implications of the option pricing models currently available.
