Gas tariffs reports: ACER recommends that the Danish regulatory authority further assesses compliance of the tariff proposed by the TSO

What is it about?

ACER publishes today its second report on the implementation of the European Union Network Code on Harmonised Transmission Tariff Structures for Gas (NC TAR) for the Danish transmission system.

ACER concludes that the Danish transmission system operator (TSO), Energinet, does not sufficiently demonstrate the compliance of the proposed reference price methodology (RPM) with the requirements of the NC TAR.

What are ACER’s recommendations?

ACER recommends the national regulatory authority (NRA) to further assess the compliance of the proposed RPM with the NC TAR requirements on cost-reflectivity and cross-subsidisation.

The NRA should additionally provide further transparency on a proposed non-transmission emergency supply service and should revise the compliance of the proposed discount to capacity contracted on long-term basis.

ACER also provides additional guidelines on the on-going discussion to merge an upstream pipeline with the Danish transmission network.

In particular, the Report refers to the revenue regulation applicable to transmission assets and to the NC TAR requirements to allocate these costs to the transmission network’s users. 

The Danish NRA shall take a motivated decision on the RPM by 14 May 2022.
