We are primarily tasked with providing power transmission services, system services and facilitating the energy market. Our core tasks follow from our appointment as grid operator under the Dutch 'Elektriciteitswet' (E-wet) and the German 'Energiewirtschaftsgesetz' (EnWG).
TenneT offers two systems for automated message exchange: the Central Postbus System and Tennet Web Services. Digital exchange of information via these systems is secured by so-called PKI certificates (public key infrastructure).
Digital exchange of information between TenneT and parties on the electricity market via the Central Postbus System or via TenneT Web Services is secured by so-called PKI certificates (public key infrastructure). These certificates ensure that the identity of the users of online networks is checked and that the data is secure.
Market parties that are recognised by TenneT are obliged to use the PKI certificates for online communication. The certificates for use on the Central Postbus System are supplied by Quovadis, while market parties can use their own Certificate Provider for TenneT Web Services.
More information about PKI and its use in automated message exchange can be found on MyTenneT. If you wish to apply for a certificate for use on the Central Postbus System, please contact our Customer Care Centre via tennetccc(at)tennet.eu. For technical details and public keys relating to certificates on the Central Postbus System, please visit QuoVadis.
