Tariff regulation and profitability of energy networks
In this paper we analyse the impact of the regulatory framework for the new regulatory period (2011 – 2013) on the long-term profitability of TenneT TSO, the operator of the highvoltage electricity network in the Netherlands. Long-term profitability is a key component of the financeability of a firm. In the long run, the return on capital should be at least equal to the opportunity costs of capital in order to finance investments. As the ultimate indicator for the long-term profitability, we use the net present value of economic profit, which is the difference between total revenues and total costs, including a normal return on capital. In order to simulate the future financial development of the TSO, we developed a model.
