Our firm trades in certain environmental commodities such as California Carbon, RGGI ("Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative), NJ Solar Renewable Energy Credits and others that have certain mandated price (hard or soft) price floors and ceilings to mitigate price volatility. Most entities use a basic black scholes pricing model to price up options in these markets but such models assume a normal distribution of outcomes and do not properly take into consideration certain regulatory limitations such as price floors and banking.
We would like to engage you to construct an option pricing model in excel with an easy to use interface for us to price and produce all the relevant greeks taking into consideration the differences in the market. The model should be able to be adjusted easily by the end user such that we can adjust the floor and ceilings or banking rules and probabilities of such events.
This shall be a work for hire product where all work product is owned by our firm once produced and all copies are destroyed by the contractor once created.
