Price sheets

The total fee for use of the power grid of TenneT TSO GmbH is comprised of several components.

The grid fees include


  • use of the grid infrastructure (overhead lines, cables, transformers, substations, etc.),
  • provision of system services (frequency stability, voltage stability, re-establishment of power generation and system management), and
  • coverage of losses occurring in the transport of electricity.

The fees are subject to additional costs for the Combined Heat and Power Act, plus additional costs arising from the implementation of the legal requirements pursuant to § 19 Para 2 StromNEV, the use of reactive power if applicable, concession tax, if applicable, and value added tax in the respective statutory amount.

Price sheets for grid users

The following price sheets include charges for grid users (draw-off points):

  • Price sheet 1: Fees for grid usage (yearly activity price system)
  • Price sheet 2: Fees for grid usage (monthly activity price system)
  • Price sheet 3: Fees for grid reserve capacity
  • Price sheet 4: Use of reactive power
  • Price sheet 5: Emergency supply
  • Price sheet 6: Measurement and billing price


Price sheet 7 (for traders)

In line with the ETSO CBT Agreement 2004, TenneT TSO GmbH no longer charges export or import fees for cross-border energy deliveries. This does not refer to any fees to be paid within the framework of auctions.

It is necessary to reserve grid capacity to transport electric energy via published bottlenecks in the grid. More information can be found in the category congestion management.

The Energy Economy Act of 7 July 2005 applies to energy deliveries in Germany. Foreign transmission grid operators are subject to their respective national regulations. Therefore, an additional application of the described regulations and procedures to international, cross-border energy deliveries as well is not permissible.

There is currently nothing available for a standardised international procedure for handling cross-border energy transport. Due to the problems of crossing control areas, an agreement with transmission grid operators is already necessary at national and international levels now in any case.
