Permission to connect/inject

Permission to connect/inject

This LAP concerns the injection of hydrogen into the low pressure transmission gas grid at the DSO level and the permitting framework and procedures required to be followed for DSO connection, along with technical requirements for and oversight of local grid connections
 
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 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 DSO obliged to connect the facilities; can DSO deny the connection and under which conditions? ii. Are there requirements for DSO to ensure the availability of connection? iii. Which are the requirements fo
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 DSO ii. Assessment of grid compatibility by DSO 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 and H2 supplier? a
) Is DSO/TSO obliged to feed-in the H2; can DSO deny the injection and under which conditions? b) Are there requirements for DSO to ensure a minimum feed-in capacity? c) Are there requirements (technical) for the supplier of H2 (or
a - Is DSO/TSO obliged to feed-in the H2; can DSO deny the injection and under which conditions?
b - Are there requirements for DSO to ensure a minimum feed-in capacity?
c - Are there requirements (technical) for the supplier of H2 (or for the supplied H2)?
Will you treat a connection for hydrogen injection in the same way as a regular connection for natural gas injection? Or are there other legal/administrative responsibilities/requirements for you as DSO but also for the supplier with regard to the permission to connect/inject Hydrogen? If yes: please name them.
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 DSO 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 DSO obliged to prioritise the injection of hydrogen instead of natural gas?
