An energy investor of the 1970's or 1980's would hardly recognize the energy market of today. Global changes in regulatory structures, privatization efforts, and competitive market forces are engineering a variety of trading innovations. Multinational corporations are consolidating and and constructing new commodities and new markets for trading that are changing the shape of the energy industry. Veteran energy insider Peter Fusaro shows you how to negotiate this shifting terrain and participate in Energy Convergence: The Beginning of the Multi-Commodity Market. Assembing an all-star cast of contributors, Fusaro examines the new developments and their ramifications from every conceivable angle, providing the first comprehensive coverage of all the new markets. Topics addressed include: Weather Derivitives and reinsurance; the developement of bandwith market liquidity; new techniques in energy options; freight trading as an emerging commodity market; market risk in electic generation finance; energy risk management in the merger context; emerging financial markets for protecting the environment.

Energy Convergence identifies and addresses the key elements in the ongoing development and evolution of the energy trading markets. This book is an important addition to the literature on contemporary energy trading markets. It pulls together in one place thoughtful discussions about the way energy markets are converging from different starting points." ...A. S.
