Market information regarding VIP Implementation

The VIP France - Germany, VIP Waidhaus NCG and VIP Oberkappel NCG are in operation since the 1st of March 2019.

Please find all the documents published by GRTgaz Deutschland on the right side of the page.

Article 19 Paragraph 9 of the Regulation (EU) 2017/459 (NC CAM) foresees the establishment of virtual interconnection points (VIP). The concerned German Transmission System Operators (TSOs) have in 2018 regularly informed market participants on the intermediate status of implementation as well as on the discussions with the regulatory authorities at the European and national level.
