Abstract: In the energy sector, there has been a transition from monopolistic to oligopolistic situations (pool markets); each time more companies' optimization revenues depend on the strategies of their competitors. The market rules vary from country to country. In this work, we model the Iberian Day-Ahead Duopoly Market and find exactly which are the outcomes (Nash equilibria) of this auction using game theory.

Keywords: Duopoly; Nash Equilibria; Day-Ahead Market
