Data hub project on hold
The board at Svenska kraftnät decided on the 22nd of September 2020 to put the project working with the development of the Elmarknadshubb on hold.
Due to delays in the legislation and other uncertain circumstances the project at Svenska kraftnät that develops the Elmarknadshubb will be set on hold until further notice.
Background: the original assignment
Svenska kraftnät and the Swedish Energy Markets Inspectorate (Energimarknadsinspektionen, Ei) have been assigned by the Swedish Government to establish a so-called data hub that will encompass all metering data for the electricity market in Sweden.
The introduction of the data hub will result in significant changes on the electricity market in Sweden. One of the main purposes of the data hub is to enable a supplier centric market model, meaning that electricity consumers will only need to have one electricity trading company that will invoice both distribution and consumption of electricity.
Another purpose is to enable new types of services related to energy efficiency by increased competition and transparency on the electricity market, as a result of improved access and exchange of information with the data hub.
