The TSOs have started work on drawing up the gas network development plan for 2022-2032, according to a press release. The publication of the consultation document and the additional public workshop offered by the TSOs are expected to take place in May 2022.
As part of the creation of the Gas Network Development Plan 2022-2032, the TSOs are currently carrying out extensive evaluations and specific network calculations. In addition, the TSOs perform additional, legally prescribed tasks in parallel to the NEP, such as processing the coal phase-out scenario in accordance with Section 54 KVBG and supply security scenarios.
Participation in the market survey for hydrogen generation and demand (WEB) was gratifyingly high. It has led to extensive modeling of the future hydrogen network. The TSOs are also developing the hydrogen network for the first time together with interested pipeline network infrastructure operators in a process that has yet to be developed. (amo)
