The Energy Markets Inspectorate, which is the supervisory authority for the energy market, has certified Swedegas as a transmission grid operator for natural gas in Sweden. Swedegas is now a TSO (Transmission System Operator) for the Swedish gas market.
Certification is an important prerequisite at the next stage when Swedegas takes over balancing responsibility for natural gas from Svenska Kraftnät in 2013. Balancing responsibility involves maintaining the balance between gas supply and demand in the grid.
Further information about certification is available on the Energy Markets Inspectorate website.
