Financial regulation in the energy sector: jumping the gun

Abstract:
The inclusion of energy OTC derivative trading in EMIR (European Market Infrastructure Regulation) strongly builds on the assumption that the sector poses risk of contagion towards the real economy. This hypothesis of systemic risk was not well tested as part of the regulatory preparation. We find that empirical evidence does not support the hypothesis, questioning the necessity of financial regulation in the energy sector.
