Economic, supply and demand, and external factors affect the price of energy. The price exhibits uncertainty, high volatility, seasonality, and spikes. One way of dealing with risk (Civ Eng Environ Syst 33(3):177–198, [1]) associated with energy prices, is through hedging with energy options. The value of energy options depends on the underlying price of energy.
