Individual grid charges as per §19 para. 2 Clause 1 StromNEV

In accordance with §19, section 2 S. 1 StromNEV, TenneT TSO GmbH is required to offer an end consumer, in deviation from § 16 StromNEV, an individual grid charge if, based on existing or forecasted consumption data or based on technical or contractual circumstances, it is apparent that the peak load of an end consumer foreseeably deviates considerably from the simultaneous annual peak load of all sampling of this grid or transformer level.

Background information

According to the requirements of the BNetzA (Regulation of Power Network Charges), TenneT TSO GmbH must determine the respective peak load windows for the four seasons for each grid connection level (extra high voltage and transformation extra high/high-voltage).

Based on these peak load time windows, TenneT TSO GmbH shall offer an individual grid charge in accordance with § 19, section 2, clause 1 StromNEV to an end consumer, whose electricity consumption from the grid of the transmission grid operator for its own consumption at the customer's sampling point deviated considerably from the application filed in the past calendar year, or it can be shown credibly that a considerable deviation (see threshold of significance) of the annual peak load will occur for the following year.
