The draft 2016 Gas Network Development Plan (NDP), which the German gas transmission system operators (TSOs) today submitted to the German national regulatory authority Bundesnetzagentur (BNetzA), provides a comprehensive action plan for network development to ensure a natural gas supply that is fit for the future.
Other than working on the actual content of this year's NDP, which is the fifth to be produced since 2012, the TSOs have placed a particular emphasis on further improving transparency. At http://www.nep-gas-datenbank.de they have now published a database for the first time to provide details on the metrics on which the NDP works have been based.
Due to legislative changes the next NDP will be published in two years' time.
