Laboratoire de Finance des Marchés de l'Energie

Projet de recherche commun entre l’Université Paris Dauphine, l'école Polytechnique, le Centre de Recherche en Economie et en Statistique (CREST) et la R&D du groupe EDF.

Créé en même temps que la Chaire Dauphine Ecole Polytechnique EDF - CA CIB« Finance et Développement Durable – Approches Quantitatives », il a pour vocation d’accueillir des chercheurs de toutes institutions académiques désireux de travailler avec des ingénieurs-chercheurs de la R&D d'EDF sur les problématiques d’économie mathématique et de finance quantitative de long terme du secteur énergétique.

Conférence ANR CAESARS 5-7 September 2018 

In electrical system, strong evolutions are under way that will change deeply the organisation of the whole sector in the short and long term horizon: quick development of renewable technology, volatile and unpredictable production, costly investments in a difficult economic context, competing environment, emission market, new usages of electric vehicles... The simulation and analysis of the evolution of the electrical system is fundamental for better sustaining the energetic transition to a Clean Energy World but it is challenging because of various sources of uncertainties and their interdependence, the interaction between actors and between decisions. The aim of this event is to gather practitioners and academic people, experts in mathematical modeling and numerical simulation applied to energy, to present the most recent advances in these fields.

 

Open-source stochastic optimization library

The STochastic OPTimization library (StOpt) aims at providing tools in C++ for solving some stochastic optimization problems encountered in finance or in the industry. A python binding is available for some C++ objects provided permitting to easily solve an optimization problem by regression.

Different methods are available : dynamic programming methods based on Monte Carlo  with regressions (global, local and  sparse regressors), for underlying states following;  some uncontrolled Stochastic Differential Equations  ;  Semi-Lagrangian methods for Hamilton Jacobi Bellman general equations for underlying states following some controlled  Stochastic Differential Equations  and Stochastic Dual Dynamic Programming methods to deal with stochastic stocks management problems in high dimension

Regression Monte Carlo for microgrid management - C. Alasseur, A. Balata, S. Ben Aziza, A. Maheshwari, P. Tankov, and X. Warin

We study an islanded microgrid system designed to supply a small village with the power produced by photovoltaic panels, wind turbines and a diesel generator. A battery storage system device is used to shift power from times of high renewable production to times of high demand. We build on the mathematical model introduced in...

Variance optimal hedging with application to Electricity markets - Xavier Warin

In this article, we use the mean variance hedging criterion to value contracts in incomplete markets. Although the problem is well studied in a continuous and even discrete framework, very few works incorporating illiquidity constraints have been achieved and no algorithm is available in the literature to solve this problem. We first show that...

Estimating fast mean-reverting jumps in electricity Market models - Thomas Deschatre, Olivier Féron, and Marc Hoffmann

Based on empirical evidence of fast mean-reverting spikes, we model electricity price processes as the sum of a continuous Itö semimartingale and a a mean-reverting compound Poisson process. In a first part, we investigate the estimation of the two parameters of the Poisson process from discrete observations and establish asymptotic efficiency in various asymptotic settings. In a second...
