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 connection to the grid;
- tariffs for use of the grid, including the imbalance tariff;
- tariffs for ancillary services.
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.
New tariffs came into force in January 2012. You can find them in the Products & Services section on the pages:
