Report: Challenges and opportunities for the Nordic power system
The Nordic Transmission System Operators (TSOs) Svenska kraftnät, Statnett, Fingrid and Energinet.dk are launching a report summarizing the shared views of the TSOs on challenges and opportunities affecting the Nordic power system in the period leading up to 2025.
-Ensuring a common approach from the TSOs is imperative to finding the best solutions to the challenges the power system is facing. As many of our problems are shared, it is natural to find common solutions, says Jussi Jyrinsalo, Senior Vice President of Fingrid.
Closure of thermal power plants, increasing share of windpower, decommissioning of nuclear power plants and a steep increase in interconnector capacity are factors contributing to an increased complexity in power system forecasting, operations and planning.
The main challenges foreseen by the Nordic TSOs in this changing environment are meeting the demand for flexibility, ensuring adequate transmission and generation capacity to guarantee security of supply and meeting the demands of the market, as well as maintaining a good frequency quality and sufficient inertia in the system to ensure operational security.
The report outlines the main challenges and the way forward to finding common solutions. It will be followed by a report, which will analyse and prioritize solutions to be implemented by the Nordic TSOs. This follow-up report will be available in Q2 2017.
