Requirements relating to security of supply and development of renewable energy require new transmission capacity in Norway and to other countries. The Statnett Board of Directors has adopted governing guidelines that will be applied to set main grid tariffs for the current period, as well as the 2014-2018 period.
The investments in the next generation main grid are well under way, based on broad political agreement, and this will be costly. Statnett is committed to finding a model that will contribute to socio-economically efficient use and development of the main grid whilst also balancing the consideration for various customer groups. The tariff strategy will set important precedents for the future work of further developing the tariff model and stipulating the annual main grid tariffs.
