Registration for access to energy market systems

Are you a new market party and do you need access to the central systems in the energy market? Click the button below and register.

Why register?

You want to access the central systems and the sector has agreed a data security policy for this. Registration ensures that we send you the right data for your role.

When does it make sense to register?

Please make the following preparations/arrangements before registering or when you start the registration procedure. This helps us process your application faster.

In preparation and as part of the responsibilities of your new role in the energy market, please make sure you read the documents listed below:

Only for Other Service Providers:

The market parties in the energy sector exchange information via the Portal. This exchange takes place via a Graphical User Interface (GUI). If required, SOAP Webservices (XML) can also be used. Please decide which method is suitable for you beforehand.

Graphical User Interface(GUI)

End users are allowed access to a GUI as the default solution. End users of market parties can access the services in the Portal with a GUI. Single sign-on, for example, ensures that a user does not have to log in again for each service. This does not require any further technical set-up in your system.

SOAP Webservices (XML)

When you opt for SOAP Webservices, you link your systems to EDSN’s central services. Additional information about the required architecture configuration for your system will be provided if you choose this service.
Note: make sure that you have somebody available during the technical implementation who:

  • Maintains contact with EDSN’s Functional Manager(s)
  • Facilitates the process steps and has knowledge of:
    • the SOAP/XML protocol
    • the use and application of certificates to secure connections

Depending on your market role, you must register with one of the organisations listed below. This application can run in parallel to your application to EDSN.

Explanation steps for entry

The first step is to register with EDSN.nl. You can do this by clicking on the button above and filling in the form.

In this step, you register the market role that you are going to fulfil in the energy market. This registration procedure can run in parallel to your application for your acknowledgement with the TSO for Electricity (TenneT) and/or Gas (Gasunie Transport Services),or your Supplier licence with the Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM).

In this step, you set up the connection between your organisation’s local system and EDSN’s central systems. Please provide the data required for the connection via web forms and the application for certificates to allow testing.

In this step, you prepare for the qualification procedure that you will carry out in the test environment. Qualification means that you, as a new market party, can successfully demonstrate that your local system is suitable for correctly and completely exchanging information with EDSN’s central systems and that you have adequate knowledge of the market processes.

You have successfully completed the EDSN qualification procedure and we are in possession of an authorization, licence or dispensation (depending on your market role). In this step, we register you as a market party in the production systems and inform the national and regional grid operators. After 10 working days, the procedure for entering the energy market has been completed and you can start to act in your new market role.
