Electricity market

The energy sector is developing rapidly. The process of European market integration began some years ago. Its purpose is to create a single European market that enables market parties to trade gas and electricity across national borders easily and efficiently.

PKI certificates

All digital information exchanged between TenneT and other electricity market participants is secured by public key infrastructure (PKI) certificates.

Regular process

Safe data

These PKI certificates verify and authenticate the identity of users in online networks and keep the data safe. Market parties that are recognised by TenneT must use PKI certificates for online communication. The PKI certificates are provided to new and existing parties by Digidentity, the certificate service provider that created the authentication system used by the Dutch government. 

For more information about TenneT’s use of Digidentity and PKI certificates, or to apply for accreditation, see cpscertificatenaanvraag.tennet.eu or contact our Customer Care Centre with specific questions on tennetccc(at)tennet.eu.
