Nord Pool Spot and NASDAQ OMX Commodities have jointly produced a new book - "Power to the People" - celebrating the first 20 years of Nordic power market integration.
2013 saw the official 20th anniversary of the launch of the Nordic power market. In January 1993, Statnett Marked started the journey towards today’s integrated power market based on the new Norwegian Energy Act. In the intervening 20 years the Nordic power market has established itself as the most transparent, efficient and reliable power market in the world.
The book describes some of the important processes in the various Nordic countries during the market’s first 20 years and documents the history of its development. “Power to the People” will give the reader a detailed insight into this important part of Nordic industrial history.
The book is based on interviews with employees, management, owners, market participants and other involved stakeholders and is written by Hans Arild Bredesen and Terje Nilsen with support from Elizabeth S. Lingjærde. It contains interviews with key people from all the Nordic countries and highlights the political processes that were vital to launching the market, as well as exploring the experiences of key players in its development and use.
“Power to the People” is ideal for everyone with an interest in, or connections to, international power markets. For more information and to order your copy please follow this link.
