Exchange of electricity in the Nordic countries, 1996
Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
The graph shows exchanges of electricity in the Nordic countries in TWh. The Nordic countries have a long tradition of cross-border cooperation in providing an efficient and reliable power supply. The main reason for these exchanges has been that each of these countries has a different mix of power generation facilities. In the later years, from around 1997, the cooperation has changed from being an oligopoly structure with dominant state-owned enterprises to a competitive market.
