Nord Pool Spot has received the following information from Svenska Kraftnät:
The European Commission has adopted a decision rendering legally binding commitments offered by Svenska Kraftnät (SvK) that will increase trade in electricity within Sweden and between Sweden and neighbouring countries contributing to a better allocation of resources and, ultimately, to lower prices for customers and end consumers.
To address the concerns about the Swedish transmission market, SvK has committed to subdivide the Swedish electricity market into several bidding zones and to operate it on this basis by 1 November 2011 at the latest.
The full press release can be found here.
