Stakeholder involvement towards the implementation of the harmonised tariff structure for gas: TAR NC

The network code shall be implemented by 1 October 2019 at the latest. Shipper involvement is essential prior to the implementation. A detailed timeline will be published as soon as possible. 
Energinet has initiated a project prior to the implementation of the network code on harmonised transmission tariff structure for gas TAR NC.

Early compliance 2017/2018 and 2018/2019

Early compliance - Publications according to chapter VIII, article 29 and 30 of regulation (EU) 2017/460

REGULATION (EU) 2017/460 establishes a network code on harmonised transmission tariff structures for gas, including rules on the application of a reference price methodology and calculation of reserve prices for standard capacity products. The set out of Union-wide rules have the objectives of contributing to market integration, enhancing security of supply and promoting the interconnection between gas networks.

 

A crucial step in reaching these objectives is to increase the transparency of transmission tariff structures and procedures towards setting them. In this regard the network code set out requirements for publishing the information related to the determination of the revenues of transmission system operators and to the derivation of different transmission and non-transmission tariffs.

 

In order to enhance market transparency, under the coordination of European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSOG), the transmission network operators have facilitated the access to information provided to network users and market participants through the implementation of a common standardized format for publication of the required data.

 

Energinet as member of ENTSOG has implemented the harmonized template in this section of the web page. It contains the information required by Article 29 and 30 of REGULATION (EU) 2017/460.

4. Art. 30 (1) (B) (I): Information on the allowed and/or target revenue

Information related to the target revenue

Energinet is allowed to have all necessary and reasonable costs covered. See Art. 30(1)(b)(ii) for information used for the calculation of tariffs.

4. Art. 30 (1) (b) (ii): Revenue changes

Information relating to changes in the revenue.
  • Cost base:

    • OPEX: 197 mDKK

    • CAPEX: 213 mDKK

      • Existing assets (before 2013): 170 mDKK

      • New assets (the Ellund-Egtved expansion) 43 mDKK

Information relating to the following parameters: types of assets, cost of capital, capital and oper-ational expenditure, incentive mechanisms and efficiency targets, inflation indices.

Operational expenditures (OPEX) and cost of capital (CAPEX), can be found under Art. 30(1)(b)(ii). For determining depreciatiatioon the straight-line method is used. The depreciation and asset lifetime is found in the tabrl below.

7. Art. 30 (1) (b) (vi): Reconciliation of the regulatory account

Information related to the previous tariff period regarding the reconciliation of the regulatory account.

Energinet adjusts the allowed annual revenue by sums received as a result of discrepancy between the actually received annual revenue and the realized costs for a given year.

The operator keeps a special regulatory account to allow for the instance in which the annual differences between the actually received revenue and the revised costs accumulate on a yearly basis.

Energinet is obliged to include any over or under-recovery in the following year's tariffs, unless significant over or under recovery is realised. This is stated in the Executive Order on Economic Regulation of Energinet, paragraph 7(2), in which significant over and under recovery can be returned through an extended period to level the tariff impact and subject to approval by the Danish Utility Regulator.

 

This is interpreted in a method approval by the Danish Utility Regulator according to which over and under recovery with a tariff impact greater than 20% can be leveled over a period of 3 consecutive gas years.

 

 Regulatory account 2015  2016  2017   2018
 Balance primo  147  19  24  24
 Returned in the year  -128  5  0  3
 Over recovery ultimo  19  24  24  27

8.Art. 30 (1) (b) (vii): Auction premium

Information on the intended use of the auction premium.

No revenue generated by an auction premium has been accounted for as of the pricing period (01.10.2017-30.09.2018). When/if such revenue is generated it will be included in the general sum of the revenue collected.

 

9. Art. 30 (1) (c): Transmission and non-transmission tariffs

Information on transmission and non-transmission tariffs accompanied by the relevant infor-mation related to their derivation.

  • Transmission:
    • See art. 30(2)(b)

     

  • Emergency (non-transmission):    
    • The emergency-supply tariff is equal to the total cost base relating to emergency divided by the Danish consumption (protected and non-protected). The tariffs are charged by the DSO company.
             
 

10. Art. 30 (2)(a): Changes and trends

Information on transmission tariff changes and trends.

Forecast to the gas year 2020/2021. The increase in the forecasted tariffs in 2020 and 2021 is due to the Tyra shutdown and the resulting decreased in expected capacity bookings and flows.

11. Art. 30 (2) (b): Model and calculations

Information about the applied tariff model and an explanation on how to calculate the transmission tariffs applicable for the prevailing tariff period.
