Re: An Introduction to Alberta’s Financial Electricity Market

The purpose of this report is to provide some educational background to the financial electricity market and to share a summary analysis of the trade data collected by the MSA between June 2008 and December 2009. The MSA believes that the development of a strong Alberta financial electricity market is integral to the overall Alberta electricity market. A robust forward financial market facilitates risk management and price discovery.
