Issue 3/2021 of the Fingrid magazine published
Fingrid’s customer magazine has been published. The main theme in issue 3/2021 of the Fingrid magazine is the coordination of operations and market.
The cover of issue 3/2021 of the Fingrid magazine is adorned with the smiling faces of Fingrid employees Marja Eronen and Jani Piipponen, who guided the first project in the Nordic balance management project over the finish line when the single balance model went into production use on 1 November. This issue presents the project and the people who led it.
The editorial in issue 3/2021 of the magazine weighs up the implications of society’s ongoing process of electrification for transmission system operators. It is fair to say that the energy transition will fail, or at least be highly costly for society, if transmission system operators are unable to work very closely together. The situation calls for a willingness to make compromises, advance digitalisation, and investment in cybersecurity.
In the magazine’s editorial, Jukka Ruusunen, Fingrid’s CEO, considers the various roles of transmission system operators. Although the electricity market was opened up some time ago, many transmission system operators seem unsure of their roles in relation to the electricity market.
“Fingrid always endeavours to provide the market with 100% of its transmission capacity. As a gauge of our success from a market perspective, we consider the harm that transmission restrictions would inflict on the electricity market if there were constraints on the free movement of electricity,” he writes.
