§ 19 Abs. 2 StromNEV

Information for our market partners for the settlement of the lost proceeds as well as the apportionment according to § 19 Abs. 2 StromNEV

Lost revenues and levy according to § 19 Abs. 2 StromNEV

Under Section 19 (2) of the Electricity Grid Charges Ordinance, final consumers may, under certain conditions, demand an individual grid charge from their access network operator. Transmission system operators are obliged to reimburse downstream operators of electricity distribution networks for lost revenues resulting from individual network charges. The transmission system operators shall compensate each other for these payments as well as for their own lost revenues. The lost revenues are allocated pro rata to all final consumers as a surcharge on the grid fees (§ 19 StromNEV levy).

The amount of the levy according to § 19 Abs. 2 StromNEV can be found on the joint website of the German TSOs: www.netztransparenz.de
Within the framework of load balancing, the lost revenues of grid operators from individual grid charges are to be reported to the transmission grid operator responsible for the regulation in accordance with § 19 (2) StromNEV and certified by an auditor by 31 July of the following year.

In order to make it easier for all participants to test § 19 StromNEV, the four TSOs have prepared a model for the auditor certification system. You can download the sample as an MS Word template at https://www.netztransparenz.de/  EnWG  19-StromNEV-Umlage  IDW-Prüfungshinweis-StromNEV).
Please note that the corresponding annual statement of loss of revenue in accordance with § 19 StromNEV must match the audited values.
