ELES is an important and solid backbone of the Slovenian electric power industry and a guardian of the Slovenian electric power system. Its key responsibility is the safe and reliable operation of the electric power system.
It interconnects all the main actors in the Slovenian electric power transmission network:
- power plants providing electric power for the transmission network;
- five distribution companies;
- five larger consumers, the so-called direct customers, which offtake electricity from the transmission network, and four larger consumers (steel-works and TALUM) with the status of a closed distribution system.
