Statutory frameworks and legal status

Both in the Netherlands and in Germany, TenneT almost exclusively performs regulated tasks arising from our designation by law as a grid operator.

Our tasks

  • provide connection and transmission services
  • provide system services
  • facilitate the energy market

In performing these tasks, we are bound by statutory frameworks, such as the Electricity Act 1998, the European codes, and the Electricity Grid Code. In the Netherlands, our compliance with legislation is overseen by the Authority for Consumers & Markets (ACM); in Germany, the same is done by the Bundesnetzagentur (BNetzA), the Federal Network Agency. TenneT is wholly-owned by the State of the Netherlands.
