The system price is the same for the entire Nordic market, and functions as a reference price for price setting in the financial power market in the Nordic region. Power supplied to the grid follows the laws of physics and flows down the path of least resistance. In addition to being a vital tool for short-term balancing, area prices indicate where longer-term measures are needed in the power system. When inflow is high, so is the supply of power, and prices are pushed downwards. Furthermore, area prices help the participants determine where it is best to increase or reduce generation and consumption. Fjordkraft is a well-known brand. The division into bidding zones does not mean that there will automatically be different area prices.
