Webinar – Energy Transition and Power Prices in the Nordic Region
FFN members are invited.
In collaboration with Bloomberg, CFA Society Norway is proud to invite you to a webinar on Energy Transition and Power Prices in the Nordic Region.
Partisipation is free of charge.
2021 was a turbulent year for the Nordics’ power market. The coming year is highly likely to bring much of the same, as the fundamentals have not changed much. At the same time, the region is experiencing rapid change as it, and the rest of Europe, accelerate towards their 2030 targets, and eventual 2050 net-zero. All of these changes are redefining the market’s fundamentals, while they also create new risks and opportunities.
To understand the change that is coming in the region, we invite you to attend our presentation and Q&A session on February 3, 2022, on «Understanding the Future of the Nordic Power Market.» Among other topics we will cover:
- What is driving the current price spike?
- Why gas prices might stay high in 2022, prolonging the current environment?
- How will generating capacity change in the coming years?
- What is the role of policy especially around nuclear?
- Interconnection within the Nordic region and its effects
- Interconnection outside the Nordic region and its effects
- Making sense of it all: risks and opportunities
Andreas Gandolfo, Head of the European Power team at BloombergNEF, will be presenting the session. Andreas joined BNEF in 2015. During his time at BNEF, Andreas has focused on how European power market dynamics change because of decarbonization efforts. He has researched the problems that arise by increasing shares of variable renewables on European grids, and has explored the market and policy mechanisms to address these problems. He has also looked at how demand, especially from electric vehicles, could help with integrating more variable renewables. Currently, he is working on understanding how the dynamics shaping power prices in Europe will change in the coming years. Andreas holds a Bachelor’s in Economics and International Relations from Tufts University, and a Master’s of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Columbia University.
