Business strategy
PSE’s strategy is a response to the challenges facing the company, resulting from a rapidly changing environment of PSE, including mainly changes of a technological and regulatory nature, as well as building a common Internal Energy Market.

Regulations have set a new framework for the activities of transmission system operators. Technologies, in particular the digitalisation of the power sector and changing consumer behaviour, will influence the operators’ current and shape new areas of activity.
PSE’s Strategy has been prepared considering strategic resources, roles resulting from the mission and vision of the company and the goals to achieve.
