The plan includes investments in the grid, measures for the efficient and secure operation of the power system, and specifies the contributions required from authorities at various levels, power producers, consumers, and other stakeholders to ensure a successful transformation of the energy and power system.

Previously, Statnett has released a Grid Development Plan and a System Operations and Market Development Plan. The System Development Plan covers both these areas and is an important step towards a more comprehensive power system planning that takes into account all measures involving updates, investments in new facilities, as well as system operations and market initiatives working together.
