Development group

The development group for electricity market information exchange is an advisory committee working in conjunction with Fingrid. The purpose of the group is to promote the efficient, equal and fair exchange of information.

Fingrid steers the development group for electricity market information exhange and provides it with meeting premises. Fingrid appoints the members of the development group. The targeted composition of the development group comprises representatives of electricity supplier companies, distribution grid owners, Finnish Energy (Energiateolisuus ry =the Board of Finnish Energy Industries), system providers and other industry service providers. The group membership is subject to annual rotation. The number of members to be replaced each year is defined separately for each rotation, depending on the electricity market parties' desire to participate. In addition, the continuity of the group's work is taken into account, which means that not all members are replaced at once.

Electricity market parties and other interest groups are entitled to submit questions, feedback and development suggestions related to Fingrid's information exchange systems to the development group. The group processes all contacts. Members of the development group offer their professional input regarding the matter at hand and, if required, a suggestion of further measures to be taken. Fingrid has the responsibility and decision-making power in issues related to developing the exchange of information. Electricity market parties can express their desire to participate in the development group to Fingrid. The task of development group members is to evaluate the development ideas, procedures and instructions related to the technical communication within the electricity retail market. No fees or expense allowances are paid to the development team members.
