Current market situation and development trends nordic market

Current market situation and development trends / Nordic market

  • Most developed common electricity market, over 70 % of physical volume traded through spot, size of financial market 5 – 8 times physical market;

  • High volatility in prices due to large share of hydro production;

  • Prices currently depressed due to economical recession;

  • Due to large share of hydro and nuclear market prices in general lower than in rest of the European markets, but new interconnectors will reduce the difference in future;

  • Large price-differences between different bidding areas (7) especially during exeptional (wet or dry) years especially during network restrictions;

  • Nord Pool spot has the monopoly on cross-border connections, no physical cross-border trading.

Opportunities in common baltic market

Opportunities in common Baltic market

  • From the 1st of January, 2009 ERC and Inter RAO have started hourly trading (before that we had only one single price);

  • From the June, 2009 ERC has the official mandate from Inter RAO to develop electricity trading not only in Lithuania, but also in Latvia, Estonia and Finland. The ammendment of the contracts have been already signed and trading will start from 1st of October, 2009.

  • The possibilities of Inter RAO Group for electricity supply to Baltic states and Finland through Estlink are up to 1000 MW per hour or up to 7 TWh per year;

  • The only factor in transparent and open market influencing the decitions of the sellers and buyers is market price;

  • Possibilities to develop retail trade of electricity;

  • Possibilities to transfer electricity through existing and planned interconnections (Sweden-Lithuania, Poland –Lithuania, Estlink 1 and Estlink 2).



  • In Lithuania for 2010 only 35% of the market is left for spot trading although the possibilities to import from Russia, Estonia or Latvia are almost four times bigger and the prices could be much more lower than from domestic generation;

  • Input fees raises the electricity prices for the consumers by eliminating cheap electricity suppliers;

  • Different time schedules of trading in Lithuania, Finland and Russia:

  • In Russia market trading closes at 8.30 (Vilnius time);

  • In Lithuania it is planned to close at 13.00 (local time);

  • Nordpoolspot closes at 13.00 (Vilnius time).

  • There are still no free trading between the Baltic states.
