PA's Troels Gregersen, Nordics energy expert, is quoted in an article in Greentech Media. The article discusses Denmark's renewable energy market and its commitment to clean energy.
Commenting on this further, Troels states: “The system operator and the whole energy system are constantly being developed to accommodate the fact that we are going away from fossil centralised production capacity to renewables.”
Troels continues: “We are moving onto more and more local production capacity for companies and households. If they have their own windmill, if they have their own solar panels, if they have other means of production, they can support the system.”

Troels comments: “It’s very important to have transmission capacity toward the other energy systems for real commercial pricing on Nord Pool. That means, from the system operator’s perspective, constantly finding the bottlenecks and inefficiencies and helping minimise those so the market becomes as efficient as possible.”
Troels concludes: “Make it possible for local production capacity to access and contribute to the energy system. Policy makes that possible with rules for how to engage commercially and therefore create incentives.”
