Energy supply: charges for access to the grid

The charges for access to the system result from the revenue ceilings set by the regulatory authority on a calendar year.

Since 1 January 2009, charges for network access no longer require approval. In accordance with ยง 4 of the Incentive Regulation Ordinance (ARegV), the regulatory authority automatically determines calendar-yearly revenue ceilings on the basis of which the network operators convert them into charges for network access that must only be communicated to the regulatory authority.
