Taking the world lead in green growth requires that Nordic countries cooperate, be cost effective and develop innovative environmental technologies that can be exported to the rest of the world. The joint Nordic green growth project is based on eight priorities, defined by a special task force set up by the Nordic Prime Ministers.
The joint Nordic electricity market is vital in securing the balance between electricity production and demand in the region. The supply side is already well integrated through the Nordpool system. The Nordic Prime Ministers now want to focus on the market’s demand side by promoting more flexible electricity consumption, making the Nordic region leading in the EU also on this field.
