Wholesale trading is at the heart of the GB market structure. As wholesale markets become more volatile with a changing generation mix and the impacts of international markets, there has never been a more important time to understand the fundamentals that underpin trading rules and the commercial behaviours that players in the market take. Cornwall Insight has launched this course to help stakeholders in traded markets understand these key drivers better.
