dc.description.abstractThis paper quantifies the degree of market power in the German wholesaleelectricity market. A fundamental model is used to derive competitive marginal costestimators which are compared with observed electricity prices. Marginal costs are calculatedfocusing on market fundamentals such as plant capacities, fuel prices, and load structures. Inaddition, international power exchange and dynamic effects like start-up costs and hydrostorage plant dispatch are incorporated. The comparison of marginal costs and prices revealssignificant market power in the German electricity market, mainly exhibited during peakperiods. Producer surplus is significantly increased by market power.en_US
