UoC Forum Project

We completed the project “Market design and regulation for stochastic electricity supply chains”. It was funded as a University of Cologne Forum in the framework of the Excellence Initiative, and aimed at providing answers to relevant yet unresolved problems in the field of market design and regulation of stochastic electricity supply chains by bringing together specific energy market know-how and methods from supply chain management. Moreover, our activities deepened and extended energy-related research activities of the UoC with a sustainable and long-term perspective.

They investigate the strategic bidding behavior of renewable producers in the sequential day-ahead and intraday market and find incentives for production withholding. The paper can be found here.
