SEMINAR / MEETING Region: Brussels

How the Nordics achieved an integrated electricity market - Lessons for a European electricity market

The Nordic electricity market is among the most liberalized markets, and the most integrated one in Europe. Electricity is traded on the common Nord Pool market and the flows between the countries depend on the price differences between the regions and countries based on the supply & demand balance in each region.

As a region that has successfully opened up and integrated its markets over the last 20 years, there are plenty of lessons to be drawn from the Nordics when it comes to electricity market design. As discussions are just starting on reforming the European electricity market design, it is only appropriate to turn to those who have undergone the same process.

The panlists will be:

Claude Turmes, Greens, shadow rapporteur for Electricity Market Design
Gunnar Hökmark, EPP, shadow rapporteur for Governance of the Energy Union
Maria Sunér Fleming, HoU Climate and Infrastructure, Confederation of Swedish Enterprise
Thor-Sten Vertmann, Energy attaché, Permanent Representation of Estonia
Erik Ek, Senior vice President, Svenska Kraftnät (Swedish TSO)

Warmly welcome!

Gunnar Hökmark, chairman of the Society for Business and Politics

Sophia Bengtsson, Swedish Enterprise
