Please note that the data presented on this page is not completely accurate and instantaneous. Our purpose with the control room page is to illustrate phenomenon in the electricity system and provide insight into the work in our real control room.

We are responsible for Sweden's electrical system
We have overall responsibility for ensuring that the electricity supply is reliable and for providing suitable conditions for the trading of electricity.Operations and the market
Measuring the frequency of the network is like checking the blood pressure. The frequency should always be 50 Hz. Then there is a balance between production and consumption and the electric system is healthy. If consumption is higher than production
Past 15 minutes
the frequency will sink, if production is higher than consumption the frequency will rise. The balance is regulated both automatically and manually by increase or decrease of production or decrease of consumption.
Total exports / imports
Electricity is a Swedish export. Sweden's electricity consumption is about 140 TWh a year and in recent years, exports have been 10-20 TWh per year. We have many important electricity connections to neighbouring countries.
The connections enable Sweden to export electricity when there is a surplus while import capability strengthens the Swedish security of supply. The map shows the flow right now and is updated every minute.
