Chapter on Energy derivatives

Cyriel de Jong wrote a chapter on ‘Energy derivatives and hedging strategies’. He updated his chapter and added a completely new case-study compared to the previous edition. The new version includes a case-study on renewable power derivatives, instead of weather derivatives. Cyriel de Jong: “the electricity sector sees a wave of new investments in renewable energy assets, such as solar and wind, which creates a number of financial challenges for all parties involved. I have therefore added a case-study of a solar park in Spain, providing some useful insights on common hedging strategies to mitigate market price risks.”
