Video: Benefits of a joint Nordic electricity market

Nordic Energy Research, who funds NEEN, has travelled through the Nordics to talk to thought leaders and to explore Nordic examples of renewable energy source co-operation. Together with Thought Leader Global, Nordic Energy Research has produced eight corporate films that each focus on a specific issue.

The first video centres around Benefits of a joint Nordic electricity market and features two of the profiles on NEEN’s list of female energy experts – Sonja Monica Berlijn and Helena Sarén.

“In the energy transition, I think the transmission system operators (TSOs) play a very important role because they are the ones that are going to enable more consumption and more production. They can try to balance the production with the consumption in real time because it needs to be in balance the whole time. And the energy markets, they can then provide incentives for either to increase the production or they can bring incentives to lower the consumption,” says Sonja.

“It creates, for all of us, flexibility, and also, at least so far, it has been very, very good from a pricing point of view,” says Helena.
