Permission to connect/inject

Permission to connect/inject

This LAP concerns the permitting framework and processes required to be followed for hydrogen injection into the high pressure transmission gas grid at the TSO level, along with technical requirements for and oversight of local grid connections
 
What is your legal situation (requirement from legislation and administrative procedures) with regard to international interconnection for the injection in the gas grid with neighbouring countries?
Is it possible for a TSO to refuse to feed in hydrogen from neighbouring countries at cross-border interconnection points?
a - If yes, under which conditions?
b - Can you have a differentiated treatment (i.e.: applying a more stringent threshold than the one applying under your national law?
What is your legal situation (requirement form legislation and administrative procedures) with regard to a national connection for the injection in the gas grid? Is there a difference if injection takes place in an isolated (regional) network without international interconnections?
Connection to the gas grid of a hydrogen producing facility
a - What are the requirements for connection of electrolyser plants which primarily use renewable energies to the gas supply network: i. Is the TSO obliged to connect the facilities; can TSO deny the connection and under which conditions? ii. Are there requirements for TSO to ensure the availability of connection? iii. Which are the requirements
b - Is required to conclude a connection agreement and if yes, what are the requirements for conclusion of a gas grid connection agreement: i. Connection assessment by the TSO ii. Assessment of grid compatibility by TSO iii. How much time does it take to conclude a connection agreement
Grid access (injection into grid) Is it required to conclude a feed-in agreement (grid access contract) between DSO/TSO and H2 supplier?
a - Is a TSO obliged to feed-in the H2; can a TSO deny the injection and under which conditions?
b - Are there requirements for a TSO to ensure a minimum feed- in capacity?
c - Are there requirements (technical) for the supplier of H2 (or for the supplied H2)?
Is there a requirement for other or additional equipment compared to a regular connection for natural gas injection in your grid? Which one?
a - Please describe which party is responsible for delivering which part of the connection? For example is the TSO only responsible for delivering a connection point?
b - Who can do the connection work (professional skills requirement)?
c - Which party is responsible for carrying out the planning and establishment of the grid connection?
In case of network congestion, is the TSO obliged to prioritise the injection of hydrogen instead of natural gas?
