React Quickly: Trading ESE

Great performance and high turnover frequency: Trading ESE allows you to react quickly to marketplace changes and balance peak load fluctuations. Use the practical standard configuration or easily configure your own customized product.

The conversion of annual service prices into service prices for capacity rights during the year as well as for the proper determination of network charges ("REGENT") applies accordingly to the regulations of the Bundesnetzagentur. 

According to this, the entry and exit fees by the upstream network operator to storage facilities, which are connected to more than one market area are, shall be provided with a discount of 75% as far as VNG Gasspeicher GmbH maintains separate storage accounts for its customers (discounted and non-discounted storage accounts). This proves that storage does not serve for avoiding the transport between market areas. VNG Gasspeicher GmbH offers such an account model for its Etzel storage facility on the basis of this regulation, which comes into force on 101/01/2020.

In contrast to the previous regulation ("BEATE"), gas can only be transferred between two discounted accounts or two non-discounted accounts within the same market area. The rebooking fee has been abolished.

Further information can be found in the product overview under FAQ and in the "Additional conditions for the cross-market area use of the Etzel storage facility" (attached to the model contract).
