What is EDIEL?

In December 1993, the Nordic power exchange Nord Pool (then called Statnett Marked) started the project EDC, Electronic Data Communication within the Power Industry. There was a desire to standardise the exchange of information between the exchange and its clients.

In autumn 1997, a requirement concerning the use of the Ediel standard was incorporated into the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate's guidelines.


The system support for Ediel (SSE) is aimed at ensuring the introduction, operation and further development of electronic data exchange for external communication between grid operators, suppliers and Avregningssentralen for reguleringskraft ("Clearance Centre for Regulating Power").
