A Unique Competitive Equilibrium on Interdependent Spot Electricity and Reserve Capacity Markets

  • Richter, Jan

    (Energiewirtschaftliches Institut an der Universitaet zu Koeln)

This paper studies the interdependency of a spot electricity market and a market for incremental reserve capacity in a competitive setting, where a continuum of firms supplies both markets. It is proved that a simultaneous competitive equilibrium on both markets exists in the stylised model used. It turns out that all market equilibria are characterised essentially by a u-shaped reserve capacity market bidding function and that the set of suppliers declaring reserve capacity constitutes an interval. If the supplier’s marginal cost curve is convex, then a unique equilibrium exists.
