Government agrees to standardise grid fees across Germany
The German government has agreed to abolish large regional differences in transmission grid fees by standardising them across the country in five equal steps. The implementation will begin at the start of next year, and completion is planned by early 2023, according to a press release. “The extension of transmission grids serves the energy transition, and this is why it is not a regional, but a federal necessity,” said energy state secretary Thomas Bareiß.
