The grid networks play an essential role in the increased electrification of society. In Europe, grid expansion plans are estimated at USD 70 billion annually 2021-2030. These investments are likely to be higher due to the sharpened targets of reducing emissions by 55 per cent instead of 40 per cent by 2030 (compared to 1990 levels).1)
In parallel, existing grids need to be modernised and digitalised to be able to optimise energy use. According to the IEA, the need for hour-to-hour flexibility in 2050 is estimated to become four times higher, with batteries and demand-response systems as some of the enablers. Investments in technologies for demand flexibility are therefore needed - an estimated 500 GW should be enabled in the market to be in par with the expansion pace required for the Net Zero Emissions scenario by 2050 2)
The Nordic competitive edge lies in a strong grid and good resources for clean energy, along with perceived high trust among various stakeholders in the value chain. We want to utilize this to increase global sales, minimize risks when expanding on the market, and overall strengthen Nordic collaboration.
