What is the gas in a geode

In the new version IX, regulations regarding outstanding requirements according to GaBi Gas 2.0 for intra-day data reporting, the switch to daily network account billing and the intra-day obligations were included.

In addition, suggestions were made regarding the further design of regulations for the introduction of bundled capacities at border and market area interconnection points, for the implementation of the specifications of the BEATE definition for the pricing of entry and exit capacities and for the implementation of an opening clause for the allocation of new capacity in the event of a change to the European one Network Code Capacity Allocation Mechanism (NC CAM) - Incremental Capacity introduced. Requirements for the demand-side management (DSM) control energy product of the market area managers have been included, which essentially regulate the communication flow between the parties.

There have also been changes with regard to the gas supplier framework agreement. This was largely standardized with the electricity grid usage contract. The balancing group contract has also been extensively revised with the aim of making it easier to understand. In addition, guidelines have been updated and, in the case of the market area conversion guide, updated with new knowledge.

The associations involved are adapting the gas cooperation agreement to the new legal requirements and market changes as required. In the new version IX, the main part of the gas cooperation agreement and part of the annexes and guidelines have been revised.

The main topics are:

  • the implementation of the specification for gas balancing ("GaBi Gas 2.0") mainly in relation to the daily network account settlement, within-day obligations for balancing group managers and within-day data reports

  • the further development of regulations for the introduction and nomination of bundled capacities at border and market area interconnection points,
