It also includes information on the status of the adapted and additional measures of the current network development proposal published by the TSOs in the 2nd consultation document on the Gas Network Development Plan 2016-2026 at the end of February 2017.mehr lesen
Given the importance of the ongoing L/H gas conversion for the energy industry, much of the Implementation Report is devoted to the details of the planning process. "The success of the market area conversion as part of a smooth overall process is a key prerequisite for national security of supply", says Ralph Bahke, FNB Gas CEO. "An updated conversion plan, which will now be binding, has been published on the FNB Gas website for market players to check the status of planning process in their areas", explains Inga Posch, FNB Gas Managing Director.
Following the 2016 amendment to the Energy Industry Act, the TSOs will now publish an Implementation Report every odd year, for the first time on 1 April 2017. Accordingly, the TSOs' Gas Network Development Plan will be published every even year in future.
