Report on auction revenues TenneT 2012/2013
Trading in electricity is an international affair. Major firms and traders buy electricity abroad, or electricity is sold in the Netherlands to non-Dutch firms. Sometimes, demand for cross-border trade exceeds what the cross-border connections are able to supply. TenneT is then forced to auction the scarce capacity, thereby earning money in the process.
ACM has examined how TenneT spent these auction revenues from 2012 and the first half of 2013. In this report, ACM wishes to provide more clarity about the revenues and expenditures of the auction revenues.
