Why your views matter

Implementing Nordic Balancing Model and the transition to 15 minutes time resolution, implies significant changes for all parties. A successful and robust implementation depends upon thorough preparations from all parties, and close cooperation and mutual involvement between the TSOs and affected stakeholders.

To get input from stakeholders and market participants on the updated Roadmap for implementing the Nordic Balancing Model, ENTSO-E holds this open online consultation on behalf of the Nordic TSOs. The purpose of the consultation is to make sure that stakeholders views and needs, with regards to their own implementation, is taken into consideration as they are affected by the implementation of NBM and transition to 15 minutes time resolution.

The current roadmap presents mainly TSOs' view on the timeline. It is based on today’s knowledge and high-level design and aims to be both realistic and ambitious. The Nordic TSOs strongly value stakeholder contributions and feedback.
