New Nordic System Operation Agreement

04.10.2019

The five Nordic power transmission system operator (TSOs), including the Danish TSCNET shareholder Energinet, have signed a new Nordic System Operation Agreement. This agreement sets out the common operating principles of the Nordic TSOs to ensure that the Nordic interconnected system is operated reliably and efficiently in accordance with national and European regulations.

Against the background of the increasing volatility of electricity generation due to renewable energies and the reduction of balancing power generation, the Operating Agreement will further strengthen Nordic cooperation, harmonise grid operating practices between Nordic countries and within Europe, and ensure the system security of the Nordic electricity system.

The document will also contain several appendices, of which the appendix on reserves has already been concluded. The Nordic TSOs are in the process of finalising further appendices on all relevant operational issues. The new Operation Agreement will successively replace the existing one after the completion of the new appendices.
