In this paper, we identify and analyze fundamental drivers on the base-peak spread of wholesale electricity prices.
We set up scenarios for a model based analysis to test the influence of these drivers. An agent-based simulation approach is used to carry out this analysis. Results show that the gas-tocoal price difference is an essential factor for the development of the base-peak electricity price spread.
