Scenario framework for the Gas Network Development Plan 2022-2032: Market partners report strong increase in demand for hydrogen and green gases
- 500 hydrogen projects reported
- Meeting climate targets early will require hydrogen infrastructure
- TSOs launch consultation of the Scenario Framework
- Consultation workshop 1 July 2021 (digital event)
The Scenario Framework for the Gas Network Development Plan (NDP) 2022-2032 published today by the German transmission system operators (TSOs) stresses the importance of integrating hydrogen, biomethane and synthetic methane into the gas infrastructure.
The Scenario Framework is the first step in drawing up the Gas Network Development Plan 2022-2032. The document outlines the development of gas and hydrogen demand until 2032 while also providing an outlook until 2050. It is based on an adjusted TM95 scenario taken from the Integrated Energy Transition Study by the German Energy Agency (dena). In this scenario, gaseous energy sources make a significant contribution to decarbonisation. The modelling variants are based on a demand-oriented development of gas consumption and transmission as required for stable and reliable energy supplies.
For the Gas Network Development Plan 2022-2032, the transmission system operators conducted their Hydrogen Generation and Demand (Wasserstoff Erzeugung und Bedarf - WEB) market survey for the second time. The market partners reported 500 hydrogen projects, many times more than two years ago. FNB Gas Chairman Dr Thomas Gößmann: "The enormous number of projects clearly shows that we have to provide a hydrogen infrastructure at an early stage. This is the only way we can make the energy system fit for the future and achieve Germany's ambitious climate protection goals."
In their last Gas Network Development Plan 2020-2030, the transmission system operators’ plans already showed that Germany needs a hydrogen infrastructure which can be built from the existing natural gas network. In addition to the hydrogen requirements of 191 TWh for the period up to 2032, requirements totalling 342 TWh for 2040 and 476 TWh for 2050 were also reported in the current WEB market survey.
Inga Posch, FNB Gas Managing Director, said: "Hydrogen and green gases play a central role in the energy transition. Without them, the decarbonisation of the industry, transport and buildings sectors is simply inconceivable."
The transmission system operators point out that the development of gas demand will be stable until 2032, the target year of the planning period. Therefore, the infrastructure will continue to be of great importance. In order to be able to guarantee a reliable supply of gas to their customers, the TSOs also take additional demand and connection requests into account for their assumptions.
The consultation on the Scenario Framework for the Gas NDP 2022-2032 will run from 21 June to 16 July 2021. The accompanying workshop, to which all market participants are invited, will take place as a digital event on 1 July 2021. An English translation of the Scenario Framework for the NDP Gas 2022-2032 will be published and simultaneous interpretation into English will be provided at the workshop.
The transmission system operators point out that until the end of the consultation period, foreign network and storage operators can provide further information on the distribution of hydrogen sources and submit applications according to sections 38 and 39 of the Gas Network Access Ordinance (GasNZV).
After the consultation period, the comments received will be analysed and incorporated into the 2022 Scenario Framework. Please submit your comments to email@example.com.
 Technology mix scenario, reduction of emissions by 95% by 2050 adjusted by TSOs to take into account current developments.

Invitation – consultation workshop on the scenario framework for the German Network Development Plan Gas 2022-2032
The workshop aims at continuing the dialogue with the public and is aimed at both German and English-speaking participants, for whom we offer simultaneous translation.
The web-based workshop will be held from 9 am to 1 pm on 1 July 2021.
You can make a binding registration no later than June 28 by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). We are looking forward to your participation and to having a constructive exchange.
Gas Network Development Plan becomes German transparency platform for hydrogen market ramp-upRead more
The German gas transmission system operators (TSOs) have today launched a survey on the production of and demand for hydrogen and green gases (synthetic methane) and on capacity reservations/expansion claims pursuant to sections 38/39 of the Gas Network Access Ordinance (GasNZV), which will be included in the Scenario Framework for the Gas Network Development Plan (NDP) 2022 (for the period from 2022 to 2032).
In their Gas NDP 2020 the TSOs had included hydrogen and green gases for the first time. The modelling will be continued and expanded in the upcoming Gas NDP 2022 with another market survey. The TSOs will ask companies, project managers, distribution system operators and adjacent projects in neighbouring countries with an impact on Germany to report their green gas projects for the Scenario Framework by 16 April 2021. "This market survey will provide us with an overview of ongoing hydrogen and green gas projects in Germany and adjacent projects in neighbouring countries that have an impact on Germany. The Gas NDP 2022 will thus be the German transparency platform for the hydrogen market ramp-up," says Inga Posch, Managing Director of FNB Gas e.V.
The TSOs have published a form on the FNB Gas website for reporting projects related to the production and demand of hydrogen and green gases. The completed form must be sent to a gas TSO operating in the area where the project will be implemented. In addition, the TSOs have published criteria as well as further information for green gas projects to be included in the Scenario Framework for the Gas NDP 2022.
Moreover, market participants can report capacity reservations pursuant to Section 38 GasNZV and capacity expansion claims pursuant to Section 39 GasNZV for storage, LNG and production facilities as well as gas-fired power plants to the responsible gas TSOs until 31 March 2021. For this purpose, FNB Gas has published criteria on its website for selecting projects to be included in the Scenario Framework consultation document for the Gas NDP 2022.
The gas TSOs plan to publish and consult on the Scenario Framework for the Gas NDP 2022 in the summer. The Scenario Framework to be confirmed by the BNetzA will form the basis for Gas NDP 2022 modelling, which is expected to start in autumn 2021.

Gas TSOs start to prepare Scenario Framework for the Gas NDP 2022-2032 with the aim of developing new gas infrastructure for hydrogen and methane in line with demand
In January 2021, the gas transmission system operators (TSOs) will launch a market survey that will allow them to develop their infrastructure for hydrogen and methane in line with demand.
