Peak load capacity

​The peak load capacity secures the supply security of electricity in situations of the Finnish power system where the planned electricity procurement is not sufficient to cover the anticipated electricity consumption.

The peak load capacity system is based on Finnish act 117/2011 (act on peak load capacity which secures a balance between electricity production and consumption). The peak load capacity can consist of both power plants and facilities capable of demand response of electricity. The administrative duties of the public service prescribed by law are managed by Finextra, a subsidiary of Fingrid Oyj.
