Stakeholder seminar


The Nordic TSOs are happy to invite you to a stakeholder seminar presenting their common report: “The way forward - Solutions for a changing Nordic power system”.

In 2016 the four Nordic TSOs: Svenska kraftnät, Statnett, Fingrid and Energinet identified and analysed the main challenges for the Nordic power system. Since then the Nordic TSOs have been working on solutions, which are described in the common report.

The report will be presented and discussed in an exclusive stakeholder seminar, where the main topics are:

  • Balancing of the power system – closer collaboration and customised services
  • Market development – improve market functionality by getting prices right
  • Grid development – planning with a regional focus in a European context

In addition to giving you privileged insight and an opportunity to provide feedback on the solutions presented, this event will be a unique occasion for networking in the Nordic energy community.
