Abstract: This paper studies risk in a stochastic auction which facilitates the integration of renewable generation in electricity markets. We model market participants who are risk averse and reflect their risk aversion through coherent risk measures. We uncover a closed-form characterization of a risk-averse generatorís optimal pre-commitment behaviour for a given real-time policy, both with and without risk trading.
