Welcome to 2023 - 30 years of Nord Pool!
As we welcome the New Year, Nord Pool is celebrating it’s 30th anniversary - three decades powering the market.
In 1993 Nord Pool began, as a solely Norway-based business, called Statnett Marked. Just three years later, we pioneered cross-border power trading, establishing Nord Pool as a name for the first time, with a Norwegian-Swedish power exchange.
Since Nord Pool achieved a world first by organising cross-border power trading, we have continued to shape Europe’s coupled power market.
We thank all our customers, partners and other stakeholders for their support for Nord Pool’s work over the past 30 years – we hope you enjoy a peaceful and prosperous 2023.
Announcing 2022 Trading Figures
Nord Pool has announced trading figures for 2022, with the year revealing solid growth across our markets.
During 2022 a total of 1077 TWh of power was traded through Nord Pool. The Nordic and Baltic day-ahead market traded 696.34 TWh and the UK day-ahead market 232 TWh, while Nord Pool’s western and central Europe day-ahead market achieved 111.1 TWh of power traded by year end. Total intraday trading for the year stood at 37.7 TWh.
Tom Darell, CEO at Nord Pool, said: “In 2022 we witnessed unprecedented market volatility including record high prices, which put the operation of a transparent and efficient power market under intense pressure. Against such a backdrop it has been good to see Nord Pool continuing to record strong and steady annual trading figures. Customers across Europe continue to place a great deal of trust in Nord Pool delivering simple, efficient and secure power trading.”
