    Project Details


    The Flex4RES project investigates how an intensified interaction between coupled energy markets, supported by coherent regulatory frameworks, can facilitate the integration of variable renewable energy (VRE) in turn ensuring stable, sustainable and cost-efficient Nordic energy systems.
    The primary objective of Flex4RES is to
    Identify and assess regulatory and technical pathways towards coherent Nordic energy systems in 2050 based on strong interaction between different energy markets that ensure resilience, sustainability and efficiency.
