There are around 380 companies supplying Nordic and Baltic end-users of power.
A supplier buys power either directly from a producer, or through Nord Pool. In general, a supplier then resells it to small and medium-sized companies and households.
There is high competition between energy suppliers within each country. Each end-user chooses their preferred supplier and makes a choice between different power contracts. Different types of contracts might be: fixed price contract, market price contract, etc. At present end-users cannot choose a supplier from another country.
