Welcome

The Investment and Trading in Electricity Markets Game (ITEM-Game) gives the opportunity to understand the main features of liberalized electricity markets and the challenges faced by the market participants in their long term investment decisions and in their short term trading strategies. Each player of the ITEM-Game represents a power company which pursues a profit maximization strategy. In the context of the game investment and trading decisions are made interactively among players using a market simulator platform. The results of the game are based on the profit of each player, which results from the income of selling the electricity generated by its portfolio in the power pool and the costs associated with the generation, including investment costs, fuel costs and CO2 emission costs.
