Supervision of electricity grid operators’ tariffs

Federal Electricity Commission

Key facts

The Federal Electricity Commission ElCom is the independent state regulatory authority in the electricity sector. With around 43 employees, it supervises, among other things, the tariffs of grid operators in the non-liberalised electricity market and the grid usage tariffs. It monitors around 640 companies for compliance with the Electricity Supply Act and the Energy Act, takes the necessary decisions and issues rulings. ElCom works with a database that no longer reflects the current state of the art and offers only limited evaluation options.
