GRTgaz Deutschland pricesheet: http://www.grtgaz-deutschland.de/en/node/1146
In accordance with number 6 BNetzA decision BK9-17/609 (“INKA”) the Market area conversion charge according to section 19a(1) Energy Industry Act is classified as non-transmission service. The derivation of Market area conversion charge is described in section 10 of the Cooperation Agreement between the Operators of Gas Supply Networks in Germany as of 27 October 2017. According to this, all market conversion costs of 2019 in the amount of 132.257.041 € are divided by all forecasted contracted capacity for TSO exit points (including IP and storage exit points, but without consideration of multipliers or seasonal factors) of 2019 in the amount of 415.797.341 (kWh/h)/a. Hence, the market area conversion charge is 0.3181 €/(kWh/h)/a.
Art. 30 (2)(a)i &ii)
|Information on transmission tariff changes and trends.|
It is currently impossible to make a valid estimation about what reference price method will be applicable for tariff calculation in the years 2020 ff. Correspondingly, no prognostic statements can be made regarding tariff development in the years 2020-2022. In this matter we therefore refer to the final consultation according to Article 26 of the Tariff Network Code, which is carried out by the Bundesnetzagentur. More information can be found on the website of the Bundesnetzagentur
