Publication in line with the Regulations governing Energy Grid Charges (Stromnetzentgeltverordnung - StromNEV)

StromNEV is a set of regulations based on the EnWG (Energiewirtschaftsgesetz - Energy Industry Act). It regulates how the methods for establishing the charges for access to the electricity transmission and distribution grids (grid charges) are determined, including the establishment of charges for decentralised feeds.

The obligations to publish the technical data on the grid and the geographical characteristics of the supply area to which the operators of electricity supply grids are subject are laid out in Section 27 (2) StromNEV.

Grid fees

he grid fees that apply to our distribution network are published in the "Grid use" tab.

Technical and energy industry-related data

Alongside technical data like electrical circuit lengths, services installed, number of withdrawal points and the amount of the average losses per grid and voltage level, energy industry-related data like the annual performance obtained per grid and voltage level and the average cost of covering grid losses are shown.

All information relates to 31 December 2020 and/or the 2020 calendar year.
