Customer committees and Advisory Committee

Fingrid has an Advisory Committee and three customer committees. The Advisory Committee serves as a channel of interaction between the company and its customers. Fingrid uses the committee to distribute information on its current affairs and plans. The representatives of the customer groups, in turn, can take a stand on the matters discussed within the committee and also introduce their own proposals to the agenda. The Advisory Committee deals with the company's entire field of operations and services offered to customers. The information dealt with by the Advisory Committee is openly available to all stakeholders. In 2016, the topics discussed in the Advisory Committee included, in particular, the shift taking place in the electricity system and electricity market and the opportunities brought by digitalisation and smart grids.

The customer committees deal with matters in their respective sectors. The Operations Committee discusses and expresses opinions on matters related to the development of procedures used for the operation of the power system and maintenance of system security. The Market Committee is an advisory discussion forum which assists Fingrid in the development of the Nordic and European electricity markets. The Grid Committee serves as a co-operation body in system development and in the management of system-related property.
