  • Incentive Scheme for Efficient Utilization of Electricity in Sweden

    Created: Inspected:

    As a result of the 2012 Energy Efficiency Directive, the Swedish regulatory authority for energy, the Swedish Energy Markets Inspectorate (Ei), has introduced new rules regarding an efficient utilization of the electric power system. To incentivize distribution system operators (DSOs) to operate their networks in an efficient way, Ei has developed financial incentives within its revenue cap regulation. This paper describes the newly developed incentive scheme in Sweden that aims to incentivize DSOs to a more efficient utilization of power systems; first implemented during the regulatory period 2016-2019. The indicators that are used for measuring to what extent the grid is utilized efficiently are: network losses, cost of the feeding grid and average load factor. This paper aims to act as reference material and inspiration to others as well as a chance for Ei to receive feedback valuable for future development.

  • Incentivizing Continuity of Supply in Sweden

    Created: Inspected:

    A revenue cap regulation for electricity distribution system operators (DSOs) has been in place in Sweden since 2012. The national regulatory authority for energy, the Swedish Energy Markets Inspectorate (Ei), determines a revenue cap for each network operator for a period of four years. This paper describes the new incentive scheme for continuity of supply that is first applied in the period 2016-2019. Depending on the performance of the DSO, the incentive scheme may result in a reward or penalty on the financial return to the DSO. In the new incentive scheme, the performance of all DSOs at local level is benchmarked to set individual baselines for each company based on the customer density. The performance indicators SAIDI and SAIFI are differentiated between different customer groups, and the indicator CEMIn is introduced. This paper aims to act as reference material and inspiration to others as well as a chance for Ei to receive feedback valuable for future development.

  • Measures to increase demand side flexibility in Swedish electricity system - Abbreviated version Ei R2017:10

    Created: Inspected:

    The task was reported to the Government in December 2016 in the report Åtgärder för ökad efterfrågeflexibilitet i det svenska elsystemet (“Measures to increase demand side flexibility in the Swedish electricity system”). This document is an abbreviated version of the report, which has also been adapted for an international readership. This means, for example, that the more detailed descriptions of proposed legislation and administrative circumstances have been removed, while some additions have been made in order to explain regulations and circumstances on the Swedish market that may be of international interest. Summaries of the views obtained from the actors on the market during the course of the work have also mainly been excluded from this abbreviated version.

  • Social costs and benefits of smart grid technologies Ei 2018:12

    Created: Inspected:

    This document is an English translation of the report “Samhällsekonomiska analyser vid investeringar i stamnätet för el (Ei R2018:06)” that was submitted to the Government in April 2018. Assessing the net benefit of a infrastructure project and the cost-effectiveness of different design options available has become increasingly important. Especially in the electricity sector considering the high costs at stake, the rapid technical development of non-wire options, as well as the many stakeholders being affected by the project. This report investigates how cost-benefit analyses should be used in the decision-making process in a Swedish context. In the report we also propose a clear and transparent framework for cost-benefit analyses as well as guidelines on which effects to include and how they should be quantified and monetized. We acknowledge that cost-benefit methodology is a continuously evolving topic. By this translation we are seeking to spread the findings of the report outside Sweden and thus enable more stakeholders to provide input on our future work both nationally as well as within the European Union. Rapporten finns även i svensk version: Samhällsekonomiska analyser vid investeringar i stamnätet för el Ei R2018:06
