Publication of the biogas neutrality charge


Following an amendment of section 20b of the German Gas Network Tariff Regulations (GasNEV) which took effect on 1 January 2014, the so-called biogas neutrality charge (Biogasumlage) must now be applied uniformly throughout Germany.

In the sense of § 7 of the Cooperation Agreement in the currently valid version (“KoV”) in conjunction with the „Guideline for biogas redistribution levy“, NCG publishes the uniform throughout Germany applicable specific biogas levy fee. The throughout Germany applicable biogas levy fee for the calender year 2021 amounts to 0,6250 €/kWh/h/a. The biogas levy fee is charged in addition to the network fee at Exit points to directly connected end consumers and downstream grids of the transmission system operators. Exit points to storages, border- and market area interconnection points remain unaffected.

For the calender year 2020 the biogas neutrality charge is 0,6350 €/kWh/h/a.

For the calender year 2021 the biogas neutrality charge is 0,6250 €/kWh/h/a.
