Four Nordic Transmission System Operators (TSOs) have opened a joint office in Copenhagen, according to Denmark’s Energinet.dk.
Apart from Energinet.dk, the joint office will represent Finland’s Fingrid, Svenska Kraftnät from Sweden, and Norwegian Statnett.
By opening the joint office, the TSOs have formalized their collaboration in response to coming European regulation requiring the establishment of so-called Regional Security Cooperation Initiatives (RSCI).
The main tasks of the joint Nordic office will be to coordinate capacity calculation, outage planning, and security analysis as well as the development of common grid models and short and medium term adequacy forecasts across the four countries.
The office will be fully operational by the end of 2017, and staffed mainly by employees from all four TSOs.
