Networks: Fees for Use, Concessions, Closed Grids

Charges for the use of networks, concessions, self-contained networks - operators of electricity and gas grids are subject to strict state regulation. We conduct the necessary licensing proceedings before the relevant authorities. In addition, we conduct nationwide more than 200 court cases in which the equity of network charges including those under existing network licenses is concerned.

We advise municipalities and network operators on the granting of concessions, negotiate concession agreements and advise on special questions of concession law. We advise the operators of regulated area networks and self-contained networks on special questions of network access and the structuring of agreements with network users. Finally, we advise gas network operators on the implementation of their statutory obligation to cooperate and form regional cooperations.
