Abstract

The new competitive electricity markets make it imperative for companies related to electricity production and retail to have tools in place for energy offers. Price forecasting is critical when making offers in electricity markets, since it is considerably more complex than demand forecasting and the level of uncertainty is higher. Knowing electricity prices beforehand makes it possible for generators to determine their optimal production strategy in order to maximize their profit. Similarly, consumers and retailers can plan their consumption and produce energy bids to maximize their utility. Therefore, price forecasting is instrumental both for producers, retailers and consumers.

Abstract

The last decades have seen dramatic changes in trading technology and the way that financial markets operate. As trading technology advances, news providers have kept pace and deliver news to market participants around the world within fractions of a second using electronic systems. Currently, most news is still interpreted by humans but news providers have started to offer newswire products with machine learning systems that specifically cater to algorithmic traders. In practice, newswire messagesmake up a major part of the public information set available to investors. This book studies how newswire messages impact modern electronic equity markets.

Abstract

This book makes a contribution to the formulation and implementation of production cost models for the modelling of liberalized electricity markets by addressing issues associated with the level of detail in the representation of the underlying power system, the accuracy of the results and the modelling effort. To this end a production cost model was formulated and applied to estimate the short-run marginal cost of the power systems of three important European electricity markets.

Abstract

This book examines the Vehicle-Routing-Problem with split-deliveries and alternative delivery periods (SDVRPA). It is solved with a Branch-and-Price-Algorithm. When alternative delivery periods and split-deliveries are employed, freight forwarders get a wider scope for planning and can therefore plan more efficient routes. Even with few alternative delivery periods, which allow vehicles to be used more efficiently, substantial savings can be achieved.

Abstract

Food price volatility is one of the major challenges facing the global agricultural system today. This was most vividly illustrated during the global food crisis of 2007–9 when price spikes occurred for key staple food commodities—such as wheat, rice, maize, and soybeans. Given the variety of reactions by governments of countries experiencing similar food price shocks, the 2007–9 crisis offered an excellent natural experiment for generating knowledge on responses to price volatility in particular and on the political economy of agricultural policy-making more generally. This book contains the wealth of collaborative research by a global team of experts on food price policy—the research was undertaken on a sizeable group of low- and middle-income countries that were highly affected by the 2007–9 food crisis. The central aim of the study is to uncover which political economy factors—ranging from the constellation of different interest groups to the nature of political institutions—explain variations in policy responses across countries. The research output proves valuable for at least three target audiences. First, it can inform international organizations and donors about which types of policy interventions can mitigate price volatility and whether they are feasible given a country’s political economy context. Second, it can help national policy makers better understand the trade-offs of certain policy interventions. Third, it generates much-needed further knowledge about the agricultural policy-making process in developing countries, which remains incredibly scarce despite the importance of agriculture to these countries’ economies.

Abstract

Increasing the shares of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and Distributed Energy Resources (DER) is one of the most important levers in many countries to cope with the environmental, political, and economic challenges of future energy supply. The underlying research question of this thesis is whether Distributed Storage Systems (DSS) at the end consumer level can economically foster the integration of intermittent and non-dispatchable resources by providing demand-side flexibility.

Abstract

EU-Unternehmen müssen seit 2005 entsprechend ihrem CO2-Ausstoß genügend Emissionszertifikate einreichen. Da die Zertifikate frei handelbar sind, stellt sich ihnen CO2 als ein zusätzlicher Produktionsfaktor mit unsicherem Preis dar. Derivative Finanzinstrumente helfen beim Management der damit verbundenen Risiken. Die Arbeit analysiert und beantwortet grundlegende Fragestellungen zur Modellierung und Bewertung solcher Finanzinstrumente im Emissionshandel.

Abstract

Transitions from socialism to capitalism are complex, both in theory and practice. Russian Economic Reform enables the reader to come to a much better understanding of these momentous changes, by providing a clear and accessible account of the major features of transition. It argues that attempts to portray the reform process is a disaster are misconceived, because they fail to take account of just how badly the pre-reform economy was doing. Many of the problems that are emerging now have their antecedents in the earlier economic system.

Abstract

Die finanzmarktbezogenen und makroökonomischen Implikationen von Vermögenspreisbewegungen haben in letzter Zeit zu unübersehbar großer Aufmerksamkeit in akademischen und politischen Kreisen geführt, und zwar bedingt durch die letzten Boom-Bust-Zyklen auf den Aktien- und aktuell auf den Immobilienmärkten. Gerade das jüngste Beispiel in den USA hatte gezeigt, dass eine Vernachlässigung dieser Entwicklungen zu schwerwiegenden Konsequenzen für die Ökonomie führen kann. Die Konsequenz davon ist, dass sich die Weltwirtschaft gegenwärtig in der schwersten Finanzkrise seit dem zweiten Weltkrieg befindet. Der Vergleich mit der Weltwirtschaftskrise liegt da nahe. Diese Arbeit versucht daher zu klären, inwieweit Vermögenspreise über die unterschiedlichen Transmissionskanäle Auswirkungen auf die wirtschaftliche Aktivität aufweisen, ob und wie sich aufgrund der Bedeutung dieser Vermögenswerte Notenbanken überlegen sollten, diese in ihre geldpolitische Reaktion einzubeziehen und ob die amerikanische Immobilienpreisblase früher hätte erkannt werden können.

Abstract

In diesem Buch wird ein Optimierungsverfahren für das Tourenplanungsproblem mit alternativen Lieferorten und -zeiten entwickelt und bewertet. Ausgangspunkt ist eine Untersuchung der logistischen Herausforderungen der B2C-Logistik. Den existierenden Zustellkonzepten wird ein serviceorientierter Ansatz zur Seite gestellt und in Form eines webbasierten Informationssystems umgesetzt. Das mit diesem Ansatz verbundene Tourenplanungsproblem wird mathematisch modelliert. Ein darauf aufbauendes Branch-and-Price-Lösungsverfahren wird vorgestellt. Darin werden Heuristiken, Lineare Programmierung und Constraint Programming zu einem Gesamtverfahren kombiniert.Das Verfahren wird anhand modifizierter Testinstanzen aus der Literatur in algorithmischer Hinsicht bewertet. Für die Untersuchung des Kostensenkungspotentials werden realitätsnahe künstliche Szenarien erzeugt. Es wird gezeigt, daß die Einführung von alternativen Lieferorten und -zeiten zu deutlichen Kostensenkungen und kleineren Flottengrößen führt.
