DSO exit capacity

Distribution System Operator (DSO) exit capacity is made available by GTS for exit points connected to the distribution network. At these points, gas flows from the national grid into the distribution network. The capacity at these points does not need to be pre booked by shippers with a B licence, the so-called programme-responsible parties. The capacity is charged monthly in retrospect by the programme-responsible party, based on details from the connection register/Centraal Aansluitingenregister (C-AR). These data can, if necessary, be corrected 4 months later.

If a programme-responsible party wants to inject gas into the distribution network, a B licence is required. More information about licencing can be found on our website, under ‘Licencing’.

The connection register, which is managed by Energie Data Services Nederlands (EDSN), registers the standard yearly usage for profile customers and the maximum usage for telemetry large-scale users. Each month, the DSO’s collect the data from the connection register and send this data to GTS and programme-responsible party. GTS calculates the capacities and the to be invoiced amounts based on the received yearly usage, maximum usage, and the factors and fractions shown in the table below.

Capacity = Max usage/yearly usage * Profile factor/Hourly fraction * Fitfactor

Amount = Capacity * Tariffs * Monthly fraction

GTS invoices the amount to the programme-responsible party, who charges these costs to the supplier (unless the programme-responsible party is also the supplier).

Below we publish the factors and fractions that are used in the invoicing process. De profile factors and monthly factors Telemetrie are  revised per 1 January 2018. With the implementation of NC TAR (2020) the factors Telemetrie will be revised again. The hourly fractions and monthly fractions for profile end users are determined annually; the fit factors are determined monthly. For a detailed process description of the allocation of the DSO exit capacity and related costs, see Transmission Code Gas article 2.1.2_b to 2.1.2_g
