Annual report(s):Nord Pool Annual Report


Nord Pool operates efficient, simple and secure power markets in the Nordics, Baltics, Germany and the UK, providing its customers – regardless of their size or geographic location – with access to a pan-European market, through a robust and efficient trading platform.

The company is now expanding into Central Europe, while also ‘exporting’ established expertise and proven trading platforms to new power exchanges in South East Europe. Nord Pool is an ambassador for the development of modern, transparent power markets across the world through its world-wide consulting services.

Nord Pool understands the challenges that the customers face, day-to-day, and is investing in the technology that will shape the future of power trading. Nord Pool works together with the customers, TSOs and other stakeholders, to offer the up-to-date products and services that match their needs.

When new EU regulation opened up wider competition within our sector, the company positioned itself at the very heart of developing future power markets in Europe. Nord Pool is a Nominated Electricity Market Operator in 14 European countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland and Sweden).

As the first business to set up cross-border power trading, Nord Pool has built the world’s most effective and liquid power markets. The power market model invented by Nord Pool some 20 years ago is today the target model for Europe and Nord Pool remains at the centre of delivering that.

380 companies from 20 countries trade on the markets in the Nordic and Baltic regions, Germany and on our UK market.

Nord Pool is owned by the Nordic transmission system operators Statnett SF, Svenska kraftnät, Fingrid Oyj, and the Baltic transmission system operators Elering, Litgrid and Augstsprieguma tikls (AST).

Nord Pool Consulting operates across the world offering a range of services related to market design, rulebook development and market regulation, power market systems and capacity building, and provides seminars based on its unrivalled knowledge of power market development.
