Gasunie Deutschland Transport Services GmbH (GUD) as TSO publishes the capacity charge for grid access in calendar year 2020, which is valid at cross-border and market area interconnection points as well as storages (capacity charge).

Due to regulatory requirements (decisions REGENT (BK9-18/611-GP) and AMELIE (BK9-18/607)), reference prices of GUD will be reduced with effect from 01.01.2020. However, these regulatory requirements have been appealed by third parties. From a current perspective, it cannot be excluded that in the course of and as a result of these legal disputes the regulatory requirements could be changed and thus the reference prices could be increased both for the future and retroactively. This is why GUD reserves the right to amend the reserve prices on the basis of legal / regulatory decisions. In addition, GUD reserves the right to request the difference between the reference price paid by the shipper and the new reference price established on the basis of a legal / regulatory decision. GUD will inform as soon as GUD knows the outcome of the legal disputes.
