På elmarkedet har Energitilsynet ansvaret for reguleringen af elselskaber med bevilling til at drive distribution, regional transmission, transmission (Energinet.dk) og handel med forsyningspligt.
The secretariat has three individual divisions: The Retail and Distribution Division, the Wholesale and Transmission Division, and the District Heating Division. The secretariat is managed by Director General Mr. Finn Dehlbæk.
The Secretariat prepares the cases that are decided by the board, and the secretariat informs the parties of board decisions. When the parties to a case have been informed of the board’s decision, the secretariat publishes the decision on the official web site of DERA. In addition to this work, the secretariat decides cases where the legal issues have previously been dealt with in similar cases by the board.
The secretariat staff develops tools for company benchmarking and models for regulating the network companies (in particular). The employees also participate in the Nordic and European co-operation of energy regulators, and they handle the communication with the many stakeholders of DERA – i.e. trade associations, ministries, and other authorities.
The Secretariat currently employs around 61 people.
