IMPACTS OF SUBSIDIZED RENEWABLE ELECTRICITY GENERATION ON SPOT MARKET PRICES IN GERMANY: EVIDENCE FROM A GARCH MODEL WITH PANEL DATA

Electricity generated by renewable energy sources creates a downward pressure on wholesale prices through the so-called “merit order effect”. This effect tends to lower average power prices and
