Customer committees and Advisory Committee

The Advisory Committee and the three other customer committees (Grid Committee, Operations Committee and Market Committee) play an important role in ensuring interaction and that the customer’s voice is heard.

The Advisory Committee deals with the company’s entire field of operations and services offered to customers. The information addressed by the Advisory Committee is openly available to all stakeholders. In addition to the renewal of services, the Advisory Committee dealt in its meetings with, among other things, the investment needs and changes to grid operations arising from the increasing use of renewable energy, the company’s readiness rehearsals and the energy companies’ experiences concerning data management.

The customer committees deal with matters in their respective sectors. The customer committees will be renewed as of 2020 to meet the renewed services, which have been regrouped into two packages instead of three. The number of committees will be reduced from four to three and their tasks have been reviewed. The committees are advisory bodies that offer insights into Fingrid’s operations and the services offered to customers.
