We are focusing on green flexibility to make a sustainable impact both on national level and supporting Helsinki’s commitment in becoming carbon neutral in 2030.

  • Continuously developing processes in market operations which tie together front- and back-offices’ operations holistically with growing exposure to all physical markets 
  • Supervise regulatory changes, such as market design and grid code in the Nordics which have direct impact on our business
