Statnett’s total revenues for 2010 were 7 247, compared to NOK 2 862 million for the year 2009. The increased revenues for 2010 are mainly due to increased tariffs and congestion revenues from price differences between price areas. Revenues exceeding the overall revenue cap set by the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) will be returned to customers through reduced tariffs. Higher revenues in 2010 were NOK 2 178 million.
Statnett SF’s overall investments in 2010 were NOK 1 892 million, compared with NOK 1 278 million in 2009.
Statnett’s activities will in the immediate and near future continue to be dominated by the substantial number of major investment projects, either being planned or under implementation.
