Heading towards an electric future

Statnett has started construction of the main grid of the future in earnest. Over the course of several years, Statnett has focused on developing a Statnett for the future and prepared for major development projects. At the same time, short-term security of supply always takes first priority.

In this interview, President and CEO Auke Lont describes the turn of the year 2012/2013 as a milestone, both specifically in terms of approved and implemented projects, but also symbolically through the move to new head offices in Nydalen in Oslo. Furthermore, Auke emphasises that developing the main grid of the future is a task that has a sound basis in clear social objectives: increased security of supply and value creation, whilst promoting facilitation of a green and electric future.
