Publication of the VTP fee


The German federal regulator Bundesnetzagentur (ref BK7-11-003) has provided that the market area manager may levy a fee for use of its Virtual Trading Point for periods beginning on or after 1 October 2011.

The VTP fee is charged for each nominated transfer of gas quantities at the Virtual Trading Point, and is invoiced both to the disposing balancing group manager and to the acquiring balancing group manager.

According to the regulator's decision, the market area manager is required to set the fee at a level that enables it to recover the direct and indirect costs it incurs in connection with its Virtual Trading Point. The VTP fee is set annually with effect from 1 October of each year and applies for a period of 12 months, respectively.
