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 Flevopolder and Gelderland
In Gelderland and the Flevopolder, the high-voltage grid is running up against the limit for electricity feed-in. The high-voltage stations and connections in this area are reaching their maximum limit of what can be transported. 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 operator TenneT is looking for parties in Friesland, Flevopolder, Gelderland, Utrecht, 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 use the busy electricity grid even more intensively.
