Grid reserve

Information on the implementation of the German regulation on reserve power plants (NetzResV) and issue of a call for expressions of interest as per § 4 para. 2 of the NetzResV

In accordance with the provisions of the German regulation on reserve power plants (NetzResV) of 27/06/2013 and its amendments of 22/12/2016, the transmission system operators annually determine the need for grid reserve units in view of the coming winter periods. The German regulatory authority (Federal Network Agency, Bundesnetzagentur in German) examines this need and draws up a corresponding report in application of § 3 para. 1 of the NetzResV determining the requirements.

Interested operators of electricity generation or storage facilities (“plant”) are invited to submit an expression of interest in accordance with § 4 para 2 ResKV to have their plant included in the network reserve. To submit expressions of interest, interested operators are required to complete the documents supplied for the purpose and to return them to the responsible transmission system operator, both electronically and in printed form:

Details of the specific prerequisites and requirements for the plants and/or plant operators, including the geographical network region in question and the technical parameters involved, are included in the documents provided.

Please consider the respective deadlines for submissions of expressions of interests to have plants included in the network reserve. The stamp showing the date of receipt by post shall determine whether expressions of interest have been submitted in good time.

Any resulting contracts depend on approval by Bundesnetzagentur, especially regarding the selection of plant operators to be contracted and resulting financial obligations upon the responsible transmission system operator. There is no legal entitlement to conclude a contract. The 50Hertz Transmission GmbH reserves the right, to change the published information without further announcements.
