Transmission tariffs

Elia’s tariffs, which are approved and monitored by the Commission for Electricity and Gas Regulation (CREG), are among the lowest in Europe.

The transmission tariffs that Elia applies are regulated tariffs. In other words, they are approved and monitored by the Commission for Electricity and Gas Regulation (CREG).

These tariffs comprise:

  • tariffs for connecting to the grid;
  • tariffs for developing and managing the grid infrastructure;
  • tariffs for operating the electricity system;
  • tariffs for offsetting imbalances;
  • tariffs for market integration.

Levies are applied on top of the tariffs, with a view to covering the costs Elia incurs performing the duties involved in its public service remit or other duties imposed by legislation or regulations and which do not relate to its operations as a transmission system operator.
