Committees

The core task of customer committees is to listen to customers' needs and views and to obtain feedback on our operations. In the committees, customers are represented by large, small and medium-sized enterprises. Each customer committee has 8 to 12 members, of which an aliquot change annually. 

Advisory Committee

Fingrid's Advisory Committee is an advisory body and a two-way information channel between the company and its customers. Its task is to facilitate the realisation of main grid business in accordance with the principles set out in the Electricity Market Act. Fingrid also distributes information on its status and plans through the Committee. Representatives of customer groups can, in turn, present their views on matters introduced by the Committee and bring their own proposals on the agenda.

A customer representative acts as the chair, and representation changes every three years. The Committee secretary is from Fingrid.

Grid Committee
The Grid Committee's task is to act as a grid development-related cooperative body between Fingrid and its customers. The agenda often includes topical issues on, for example, main grid planning, construction and measurement, as well as questions in principle concerning main grid connections.
 
Customers' views and needs are the basis of grid planning. The Grid Committee aims to improve and further deepen this interaction to jointly develop cooperation relating to planning and grid construction between customers and Fingrid. Committee work increases the exchange of opinions in questions relating to main grid maintenance and the environment.
