RAO Nordic Oy is an energy trading company that has operated in the Nordic power market since 2002. Our office is located in a modern area of Helsinki – Ruoholahti. RAO Nordic belongs to Inter RAO Group, a diversified energy holding with generating assets in Russia, Europe and the CIS countries. The parent company of RAO Nordic and its 100% shareholder, PJSC “Inter RAO”, is Russia’s major energy export and import operator.
Established in the European Union as a trading subsidiary of PJSC Inter RAO to expand the parent company’s geographical presence and operations to the Nordic and Baltic countries, RAO Nordic has been the leading importer of electricity from Russia to the Nordic power market since its business operations began.
Cross-border energy trading has been the core business of RAO Nordic Oy from the very beginning. Nowadays, in addition to physical energy trading, RAO Nordic actively participates in the financial trading of electricity prices and related commodities on the NASDAQ commodity exchange and related OTC markets.
The conduct of electricity trading between Russia and the Nordics, countries with very different electricity market structures, requires adaptation to constantly changing market conditions as well as an ability to react to both short- and long-term price signals. With over 15 years’ experience, RAO Nordic has accumulated a unique combination of knowledge and expertise with regard to both markets.
