Book description

In order to operate as a professional in this business, it is necessary to understand every layer of the industry (physical, financial, and geo-political). The energy markets represent a network of related physical, financial and credit markets, with very complex interactions and interdependencies. This book enables the reader to come to an understanding of every layer and interaction, learning everything they need to about the realities of working within these markets, in an accessible, straightforward manner.

Energy markets are evolving towards a highly integrated, global system, with shocks propagating across specific physical commodities markets and different local markets. The physical and financial markets cannot be examined in isolation from each other and this book brings the two together, providing detailed and comprehensive coverage of these continually evolving areas.

Customer Reviews

Average customer reviews for Energy Markets

Energy Markets

Very good book which has been spoilt by lack of clarity
In graphical presentations ! Quite a nber of graphical presentatations tended to lose their clarity especially If the original where in colour and in the book they appear in black and white .A typical example is figures 26.2 to 26.5 .The last one has 15 countries represented in black and whites and its difficult to tell where, the individual countries are on the figure ! Perhaps it was a question of cutting production costs which Led to sacrificing the quality .There are quite a number of such Diagrams or charts where colour would have brought all details Out !
