Grid Charges

Charges for the Amprion GmbH transmission grid usage since 01.01.2019

Due to § 6 ARegV (regulation on incentive regulation) a new revenue cap for Amprion GmbH will be determined. The new revenue cap will be valid during the third regulation period, starting on January 1st 2019, which will consequently lead to a recalculation of the grid charges.

Important notice: Additional charges, such as KWK (Combined Heat and Power Legislation), value added tax, § 19 StromNEV-levy and concession fees, if applicable, as well as other levies (i. e. offshore grid levy or interruptible load levy) are not included in the grid charges.

Uniform TSO grid charges

In 2019 the successive equalization of the TSO grid charges due to § 32a StromNEV begins. The Amprion grid charge for 2019 therefore consists of an individual Amprion grid charge part and an uniform grid charge part.
