Statnett is the Transmission System Operator (TSO) of the Norwegian electric power system. The Norwegian electricity grid is split into three levels: main grid, regional grid and distribution grid. Statnett is Norway’s national main grid owner and operator, and responsible for all high voltage electricity transmission and distribution in Norway. Such distribution is mainly from the country’s main hydro-electric power production plants countrywide.
Statnett’s grid operation is responsible for maintaining constant balance between supply and demand in real time, and for continuously ensuring efficient use of the grid and satisfactory reliability of supply.
