The Danish electricity tariffs are divided into system and grid tariffs. The system tariff covers costs in relation to security and quality of supply. The grid tariff for both consumers and producers covers costs relating to operation and maintenance of the main electricity grid (132/150 and 400 kV) and the international connections. The PSO tariff primarily covers subsidies for renewable energy and local CHP units as well as research funds and the administration of such funds.
