Forecasting imbalance prices is essential for strategic participation in the short-term energy markets. A novel two-step probabilistic approach is proposed, with a particular focus on the Belgian case. The first step consists in computing the net regulation volume state transition probabilities. It is modeled as a matrix computed using historical data. This matrix is then used to infer the imbalance prices, since the net regulation volume can be related to the level of reserves activated and…

Probabilistic Forecasting of German Electricity Imbalance Prices

The imbalance market is very volatile and often exhibits extreme price spikes. This makes it very hard to model; however, if predicted correctly, one could make significant gains by participating on

Price Forecasting for the Balancing Energy Market Using Machine-Learning Regression

The importance of price forecasting has gained attention over the last few years, with the growth of aggregators and the general opening of the European electricity markets. Market participants

Short Term Net Imbalance Volume Forecasting Through Machine and Deep Learning: A UK Case Study

The development of a deep learning algorithm for the prediction of the net imbalance volume in the UK market is proposed in this paper in comparison with a common but widely used machine learning approach, namely a gradient boosting trees regression model.
