Finding effective ways of managing energy price risk has emerged as one of the great challenges facing both practitioners and academics in the field. Management of exposures to price level and volatility is a complicated task in any business, but it is especially difficult in a commodity market characterised by rapid structural change and a growing degree of integration, both geographically and across different market segments.
