Launch of VTP market consultation in the market area of NetConnect Germany


Ratingen (Germany), 5 June 2019.  From June 5, 2019 to June 19, 2019 NetConnect Germany GmbH & Co. KG (NCG) will again be conducting its annual market consultation on the virtual trading point (VTP) operated in the NCG market area. The VTP market consultation has its basis in the German federal regulator Bundesnetzagentur’s decision of 23 August 2011 on the application of fees for the use of the VTP, under which NCG is required to consult market participants annually on the VTP services it provides.

The aim of the market consultation is to survey VTP customers as to their satisfaction with the VTP services and to derive measures for further development. As was the case in previous years, NCG expects that this year's market consultation will again provide new insight as to any additional potential there may be for optimizing the VTP services so as to further improve the VTP's attractiveness and liquidity.

The results of the market consultation will be published on the NCG website.
