This paper reports the results of the Finnish national project "Roadmap 2025" which had two main objectives. The first one was to clarify the long term vision (up to 2035) of the power system and electricity market, and the second one was to create a roadmap, a development path towards the vision. The project was partially an update of the project "Vision of the Power System 2030", reported at CIRED 2007. However, instead of focusing only on technological issues, the project also included electricity market and service market perspectives and emphasized the necessary actions needed in changing the present system into the system of the future. The main results can be summarized as follows: Challenges of the future flexible power system which will be achieved by strong transmission network, cross-border grid connections, automation, undergrounding of MV and LV networks, microgrids, controllable loads, energy storages and renewable energy.
