Cross border connections

The Nordic electricity market is part of the region of the Baltic Sea in the European electricity market. ​Good functioning of the electricity market requires that there are sufficient electricity transmission facilities between countries.

Electricity transmission congestions create separate price areas, which disturb the electricity market. Therefore, the Nordic transmission system operators have endeavoured to jointly intensify the electricity market mechanisms. 
The cross border connection Fenno-Skan 2 between Finland and Sweden was finished in 2011.
