Flexible resource project

Fingrid is planning a flexible resource project in cooperation with Estonia’s transmission system operator Elering and Åland’s transmission system operator Kraftnät Åland with the aim of promoting the large-scale utilisation of the flexibility provided by distributed decentralised resources locally, nationally, between Finland and Åland as well as between Finland and Estonia.

The aim of the project is to investigate the utilisation of the opportunities provided by flexible resources in as versatile a way as possible for the different usage needs of electricity transmission and distribution networks as well as customers. The efficient utilisation of flexible resources across national borders with high-voltage direct current transmission links will be explored at the same time. 

The flexible resource project is planned to be implemented in 2020–2024. The project has been awarded the Smart Grid Projects of Common Interest (PCI) status of the EU Commission.
