Information event for potentially affected distribution system operators on the introduction of "use instead of curtailment" in accordance with section 13k EnWG

The Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) and four transmission system operators (TSOs) would like to inform about an online information event for distribution system operators, which will take place on Tuesday 23.01.2024 from 10-12 a.m. on the introduction of "Use instead of curtail" in accordance with §13k of the Energy Industry Act (EnWG).

The aim of the information event is to discuss the regulatory framework and implementation planning for the regulation with potentially affected distribution system operators. The BNetzA and TSOs are interested in gaining concrete insights into the views of distribution system operators who may be affected in order to better assess the effects of the instrument and appropriately incorporate them into the upcoming implementation steps.

For concrete planning purposes, participants are requested to register and provide feedback on substantive suggestions by January 19, 2024 using the TSO contact form at Use instead of curtail, stating the topic "Nutzen statt Abregeln". You will receive further event information after registration.

You can contact the BNetzA via the e-mail address
