NordREG hosted a hearing on the current state of TSO’s and DSO’s roles and responsibilities and the current market design for enabling energy services. NordREG has decided to commission a mapping exercise covering the current legal framework for information exchange, energy services, micro-production and demand response. During the hearing which took place at Gardemoen, Oslo on the 8th of April, the consultants Pöyry and Thema presented their findings.
Åsmund Jenssen, Thema:
– The regulatory frameworks in the Nordic countries are generally similar, but both historical and current differences can be observed, for example regarding the ongoing development of data hubs.
Kristine Fiksen, Thema:
– Smart meters are enablers of demand response, but are not sufficient to achieve it.
Richard Nilsson, NordPoolSpot:
– Hourly metering is necessary to enable demand response, and delayed implementation of smart metering is therefore a barrier to a common Nordic retail market.
NordREG would like to thank all the participants at the hearing both the ones present in Oslo and the ones that joined us via web-streaming. Please find the presentations from the hearing below.
