Implementation of the redesign with the Gas-Market-Model Ordinance 2020
The final concept for redesigning the Austrian gas balancing model is implemented with the Gas-Market-Model-Ordinance 2020 (GMMO-VO 2020) which will replace the currently valid ordinance. Next to the adaptions of the balancing model, the new ordinance includes also modifications related to network access, congestion management, registration, etc.
The appointment of the balancing entity will be made in a separate procedure by the regulatory authority.
Note: the propagation of COVID-19 in Austria has also implications for the timing of the ongoing procedure for appointing the balancing entity. Against this background, we want to inform already at this early stage, that the entry into force of the Gas-Market Model-Ordinance 2020 (GMMO-VO 2020) will be delayed for a couple of months. The updated date for the entry into force will be set in due time through an amendment of the GMMO-VO 2020. According to the current planning, 01.04.2022 is the new target date.
