Abstract: Electricity market deregulation and liberalization have led to high volatility on power exchanges, which require the use of derivatives in energy markets for more efficient risk management which the partici- pants at the market are exposed to. The available options are one of the derivatives that have entered liquid markets. Therefore, this paper presents an example from the most developed energy exchange EEX (European Energy Exchange), with the aim of applying verified scientific methods to check the practice of functioning of liquid energy market, by using options to reduce the risk. The most frequently used models for hedging future open positions and evaluation of premium on op- tions in practice are the Black - Scholes and Black 76 model, which are therefore presented in the text. South East European Power Exchange (SEEPEX) has started operating in Serbia. Its development is going to be via integration with regional markets in the direction of integration of the total electric energy market in Europe. That path will be long, but it has already required the knowledge of market instruments used in trading and risk management at the power exchanges. Presented results refer to the essential knowledge of dynamic variables that options bring into the energy market in order to reduce the risk.
