Customer committees and Advisory Committee

The Advisory Committee and three customer committees help Fingrid hear its customers’ voice. 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.

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. The matters dealt with by the Advisory Committee in 2017 were related to assessing Fingrid’s operations, digitalisation, market development, challenges in grid operations, Nordic imbalance settlement and the opportunities and challenges in the operating environment of each Advisory Committee member.

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.
