Abstract: Liberalization of electricity markets has increasingly created the need for understanding the volatility and correlation structure between electricity, financial and energy commodity markets. This work reveals the existence of structural changes in correlation patterns among these markets and links the changes to both fundamentals and regulatory conditions prevailing in the markets, as well as the current European financial crisis. We apply a Dynamic Conditional Correlation (DCC) GARCH model to a set of market’s fundamental variables, related commodity markets and Greece’s financial market and microeconomic indexes to study their interaction. Emphasis is given on the period of severe financial crisis of the Country to understand “contagion” and volatility spillover between these markets. This approach enables us to capture the changing co-movement of assets within and between markets (financial, commodity, electricity) as market conditions change. The main results are that there is strong evidence of volatility spillover (or co-volatility) between financial and commodity market, while the Greek electricity market seems to be almost “isolated” from these two markets.
