      - 0,3 for December, January, February (winter months)
      - 0,15 for march, April, October, November (shoulder months)

    The costs for a daily FIRM capacity booking can be calculated as: 
    cost (€/day) =  booked daily capacity (kWh/h) * daily tariff (€/kWh/h/Day)

    If the booking is INTERRUPTIBLE, then a discount of 30% will be applied: 
    cost (€/day) =  0,7 * booked daily capacity (kWh/h) * daily tariff (€/kWh/h/Day)

  • Two qualities of gas are transported in GTS’s transmission grid, i.e. H-gas (high-calorific gas) and G-gas (low-calorific or Groningen gas). An important measure for gas quality is the Wobbe index. The "Regeling gaskwaliteit" contains the Wobbe ranges for each type of gas including a summary of the gas composition. Please refer to www.agentschap.nl for more information about gas compositions.
    You can indicate a preference for H-gas or G-gas on the "Application form new connection". Whether the preference indicated by a connected party can be honoured depends on the proximity of an H-gas or G-gas pipeline and the available capacity in the H- or G-gas system.

  • The total time required for the communication process is very variable, being largely dependent on the extent to which the IT systems are equipped to communicate with each other. Changes may need to be made to make the protocols suitable for the communication tests. The time required is therefore very dependent on the existing infrastructure and the resources available. You could consider outsourcing the communication tests to a specialist company. Providing the required financial securities can also affect how long the process takes.
