Today’s electricity market is characterised by historically low forwards prices and expanding renewable energy. This means new risks - and opportunities.
As we are no longer experiencing an upward price trend, traditional strategies for procuring electricity need to be adapted to better fit market conditions and individual needs.
The economic downturn in Europe and around the world impacts electricity prices in the Nordic region and explains the historically low forwards prices.
At the same time, the Nordic electricity market is experiencing a transformation where renewable energy is sharply rising and is expected to increase even more leading up to 2020. This makes the Nordic region a net exporter rather than a net importer of electricity during a normal year.
