Gasunie Deutschland Transport Services GmbH (GUD) as TSO publishes pursuant to Art. 20, paragraph 1 of the German Energy Law (EnWG) the preliminary tariffs for grid access in calendar year 2017
According to today’s best state of knowledge following tariffs for firm flexible allocable capacities will become effective as of 1 January 2017:
Preliminary Tariffs for Transport Customers and Downstream Network Operators as of 01.01.2017
(without consideration of the multipliers according to BEATE)
The designated fees include a contribution to costs for the implementation and operating of the primary and secondary capacity platform PRISMA.
The tariff for restricted-allocable entry and exit capacities amounts to 95 percent of the respective applicable tariff for firm flexible allocable entry and exit capacities.
The tariff for interruptible entry and exit capacities amounts to 90 percent in principle of the respective applicable tariff for firm flexible allocable entry and exit capacities. For IDs H207 (Entry Greifswald) and L138 (Exit Oude Statenzijl L) the factor for the tariff for interruptible entry and exit capacities amounts to 89 percent applied to the respective tariff for firm flexible allocable entry and exit capacities.
Based on the ruling of the Bundesnetzagentur for tariffing of Entry- and Exit-Points („BEATE“, BK9-14/608 on March 24, 2015) respective multipliers to convert the yearly tariffs at all Entry- and Exit-Points for all capacity products with a duration of less than one year have to be applied.
The multiplier for quarterly products (contract term of 90 to 364 days) is 1.1, the multiplier for monthly products (contract term of 28 to 89 days) is 1.25, the multiplier for daily products (contract term of 1 to 27 days) is 1.4 and the multiplier for within-day products is 1.4.
Invoicing charge 2017
The separate settlement and disclosure of the invoicing charge will be dropped from 1st of January 2017.
Biogas levy 2017
The charge for biogas levy 2017 amounts nationwide to 0.63279 €/(kWh/h)/a.
Market conversion levy 2017
In addition to the tariffs the market conversion levy will be charged. The market conversion levy will be applied to all gas transmission and distribution systems within the market area according to Art. 25 of the General Terms and Conditions for the Entry/Exit Contracts as well as to Art. 10 of the Cooperation Agreement in addition to the tariffs. Taken into consideration the expected legislative changes to Art. 19a German Energy Law on 01.01.2017 the transmission system operators publish two levies: the market area-wide and nationwide market conversion levy. The market area-wide market conversion levy relies on the current legal basis by passing on costs within the market area. The procedure is valid until entry into effect of the legislative changes to Art. 19a German Energy Law, which is going to be replaced by a nationwide market conversion levy. By coming into effect of the legislative change, the nationwide market conversion levy will be applied and replaces the market area-wide market conversion levy. The transmission system operators will inform their customers immediately regarding the application of the nationwide market conversion levy.
The charge for market conversion levy 2017, that is applied to the market area GASPOOL, amounts to 0.2113 €/(kWh/h)/a. The charge for the nationwide market conversion levy 2017 amounts to 0.1339 €/(kWh/h)/a.
