Stock Exchange Release 5 January 2016 at 10.30 EET

The Finnish Energy Authority has come to a decision about the regulation methods for electricity transmission system operations for the 2016-2019 and 2020-2023 regulatory periods.

The regulation methods encompass several different methods which together form an entity. The regulation methods allow the Energy Authority to monitor, on the one hand, the reasonableness of the prices charged by the Transmission System Operator (TSO) and, on the other hand, its capabilities to make sufficient investments in the grid, cover its costs and generate a reasonable return for its shareholders.

In Fingrid Oyj's view, the development of the key financial parameters in the regulation methods for the 2016-2023 regulatory periods has headed in the right direction and supports the long-term development of the main grid.

The regulation methods entered into force on 1 January 2016 and the appeal period ended on 4 January 2016. Fingrid did not appeal the decision.
