Redesigning the Austrian gas balancing system
E-Control intends to set measures for a further development and redesign of the Austrian gas balancing system. Major objectives are the establishment of an integrated and central balancing of transmission and distribution level based on a model with contributes to a further reduction of contractual and operational complexity. The legal requirements of both the national level as well as European level with the network code on gas balancing (NC BAL) are the basis for this process.
E-Control initiated a public consultation of a draft concept paper „Redesigning the Austrian gas balancing system” in early 2018 and received various responses of market participants and associations. The detailed assessment of the consultation responses and the further refinement of the consulted concept was subject to a public stakeholder process between Sep. 2018 and March 2019.
This section summarizes all relevant information with regards to redesigning the Austrian gas balancing system and the related stakeholder process. This also includes all preparatory documents as well as summaries of the workshops in the course of this process. A summary of the results of this stakeholder process is provided in the final summary section.
We are looking forward to receiving any questions and comments related to the stakeholder process to be addressed to the dedicated mailbox email@example.com.
