Facing these changes, Statnett regularly release both the Grid Development Plan (NUP) and the System Operations and Market Development Plan (SMUP) describing important trends and high priority measures in the coming period.
As Transmission System Operator, Statnett is responsible for ensuring a stable and secure supply of electricity by coordinating production and consumption, ensuring long-term quality of supply by developing the transmission grid, offering equal access to the transmission grid to market actors and ensuring available transmission routes by means of good maintenance practices.
SMUP describes drivers affecting the operation of the power system, implications for the operation of the system, and a comprehensive plan for the development of market design and system operation measures. Through targeted efforts and prioritised measures, we will ensure control in a more complex power system, and enable better utilisation of resources and increased value creation.
An executive summary of the plan covering 2017-2021 is available in English below. The complete plan is available in Norwegian here.
