A new parliamentary proposal put forth by Danish political party Enhedslisten (Red-Green Alliance) seeks to require the country's government to demand that Radius, Ørsted's distribution system operator (DSO) subsidiary serving greater metropolitan Copenhagen and the upland region of eastern Zealand, either be sold to an energy company under cooperative ownership or to state-owned transmission system operator (TSO) Energinet.
"The parliament requests the government to utilize the role of the state as the majority stakeholder in Ørsted to ensure that the forthcoming sale of Ørsted's subsidiary, Radius, to guarantee interests of energy and national security and to furthermore ensure that electricity distribution be operated and developed under due consideration to customers and not for securing an economic profit for owners external to the customer base," is written in the proposal, which is expected to be be treated by parliament after the winter holidays.
