Abstract

The deregulation of European electricity markets has led to an increasing need in understanding the volatility and correlation structure of electricity prices. We model a multivariate futures series of the European Energy Exchange (EEX) index, using an asymmetric GARCH model for volatilities and augmented dynamic conditional correlation (DCC) models for correlations. In particular, we allow for smooth changes in the unconditional volatilities and correlations through a multiplicative component that we estimate non-parametrically. We also introduce exogenous variables in our new multiplicative DCC model to account for congestion in short-term conditional volatilities. We find different correlation dynamics for long and short-term contracts and the new model achieves higher forecasting performance compared to a standard DCC model.
