Datahub go-live date to be postponed to 2022

The go-live date for Datahub, a centralised information exchange service for electricity trading, will be postponed from its original target of April 2021 to early 2022.

A postponement was necessitated when it became apparent that some retailers and distribution system operators will not be able to meet the original schedule. Datahub requires a simultaneous go-live with all market operators. A go-live decree is being jointly prepared by Fingrid Datahub Oy, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment, and the Energy Authority.
