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).
Congestion study Brabant and Limburg
In Brabant and Limburg there is a rapidly growing demand for additional capacity on the electricity grid, particularly due to the arrival of many solar parks. The amount of electricity generated by these is greater than the electricity grid can currently handle. Plenty of investments are being made in both regions to strengthen and expand the grid, but these are taking a long time to complete. TenneT therefore announced a temporary halt to new connections in 2021 and at the same time began investigating possibilities for using the existing grid more intensively.
National grid manager TenneT is looking for parties in Limburg and Brabant that can handle their electricity supply and demand flexibly. This exploration is part of the congestion study that the grid manager is currently conducting in order to make even more intensive use of the busy electricity grid in these two provinces.
