Via the national grid, electricity is transported from big power plants to all local and regional networks in Sweden. National grid lines are the highways of the electrical system.
The weather affects the production of hydro and wind turbines. It also has great significance for how much electricity is consumed. It is a challenge because there must be a balance in the electrical system even on cold and windless winter days.
Operations and the market
In the control we control and monitor the country's electrical system around the clock and ensure that there is always a balance between production and consumption of electricity in Sweden. You will find general information about the current production and operation situation here.
