Confirming conditions for electricity and natural gas network operators

  • Permit or other obligation
  • Nationwide
  • Public service

Electricity and natural gas network operators shall apply to the Energy Authority for confirmation of the terms and conditions of the transmission and connection services and the principles for determining charges for connection before they are put into service.

Conditions to be confirmed include:

  • Network terms and conditions for the distribution network
  • Network service terms and conditions for power production
  • High voltage distribution network service terms
  • Terms for connecting the distribution network
  • Conditions for connection to electricity generation
  • Terms for connecting high-voltage distribution networks

The Finnish Enegy publishes the general terms and conditions of the transport and connection service in the field, for which the network operator can apply for confirmation from the Energy Authority.

The network operator may also apply for confirmation of its terms and conditions from the Energy Authority.

Do the following

Confirmation of the terms recommended by the Finnish Energy:

Submit a free-form application for confirmation by e-mail to the registry of the Energy Authority.

My terms confirmation:

Apply for confirmation by submitting a free-form request for confirmation and the terms and conditions to be confirmed by e-mail to the registry of the Energy Authority.

To whom and on what terms

The requirements of the network operator's terms and conditions are laid down in section 12 of the Act on the Supervision of the Electricity and Natural Gas Market.

The service is free of charge.


Conditions must be established before they are introduced.

Processing time

The conditions recommended by Finnish Energy can normally be quickly established because the Energy Authority has assessed their legality in advance. It takes more time to determine the legality of the network operators' own terms and conditions and the principles of accession fees.

Period of validity

As a rule, the terms and conditions are confirmed as valid until further notice.
