This book provides an introduction to energy economics. It shows how to apply general economic theory as well as empirical and advanced econometric methods to explain the drivers of energy markets The three main components of a grid are generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity. Most grids have a "radial structure" which is like a tree shape where energy is distributed- or branches out- from the generating source (e.g.
