The agreements on information exchange services
It is Fingrid's task to develop the exchange of information required for electricity trade and imbalance settlement as set out in the Electricity Market Act (Sähkömarkkinalaki, 588/2013).
Fingrid's information exchange services are part of the electricity markets' information exchange environment. In order to develop the effective and accurate exchange of information, Fingrid carries out close cooperation with e.g. electricity market parties, interest groups, service providers, supervisory authorities, legislators, organizations which develop national and international communications and other transmission system operators. Effort is required of all electricity market parties to ensure a functional information exchange environment.
The services are included in Fingrid's information exchange services' service agreement. In its decision dated 24 September 2015, the Energy Authority confirmed the method for determining the reasonable profit of Fingrid’s information exchange service and the service terms and conditions for information exchange services. At the end of 2015 we concluded information exchange service agreements with electricity suppliers and grid owners who operate on the Finnish electricity retail market. Agreement on information exchange services will be concluded between Fingrid and all new electricity market parties as part of the measures that must be implemented before starting up operations on the electricity retail market.
From the beginning of January 2017 also other retail market actors (besides electricity suppliers and grid owners) such as message operators, service providers etc. have a possibility to become a customer. The new service concept takes into account the confidentiality of the information on the EDIELfi service portal, so the metering point register service is available only for grid owners and electricity suppliers as before. Service description has been updated to match the service package offered by Fingrid and considering the benefits brought by the EDIELfi portal.
Service prices of information exchange services for electricity market parties (suppliers and grid owners) are unchanged. To the pricelist is added a service price for a new customer group electricity market actors. Energy Authority's decision dated 24.09.2015 about the agreement on information exchange services for electricity suppliers and grid owners is still valid and remains the same.
Please find the Service agreement on the Service agreement for electricity market parties / Service agreement for electricity market actors subpages.
Changes in the terms of service will be made with the approval of Energy Authority.
