While Nord Pool is a Nominated Electricity Market Operator (NEMO) in 15 European countries, the company also services power markets in, among other countries, Bulgaria and Croatia. When new EU regulation opened up wider competition in the energy trading sector, Nord Pool positioned itself at the very heart of developing future power markets in Europe. As a result, Nord Pool is a key player in both the Single Day-Ahead Coupling (SDAC) and the Single Intraday Coupling (SIDC) European market coupling projects.
In 2019, Nord Pool had a total turnover of 494 TWh of power traded. The company has offices in Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki, Tallinn, London and Berlin.
Nord Pool is owned 66% by Euronext and 34% by the Transmission System Operators Statnett SF, Svenska Kraftnät, Fingrid Oyj, Energinet.dk and Litgrid.
Worldwide, Nord Pool Consulting offers 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 knowledge of power market development.
