Energy supply: Closed distribution networks (object network / industrial or plant networks) - Permit

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

If energy is distributed to supply customers in a geographically limited industrial or commercial area or in an area where services are shared (e.g. airports, nursing homes and shopping centres), the special regulation of the Energy Industry Act must be observed (§ 110 paragraph 2 Energy Industry Act - EnWG). The examination of the energy law requirements and the classification as a closed distribution system is carried out by the regulatory authority. In accordance with an administrative agreement, the Federal Network Agency performs these tasks in Schleswig-Holstein.

Details on the privileges granted to operators of closed distribution networks, the regulatory requirements and the application procedure can be found in the joint position paper of the regulatory authorities of the federal states and the Federal Network Agency of 23 February 2012 (Guidelines for Closed Distribution Networks).

Hint:
Object grids have lost their status under energy law and the associated far-reaching privileges under energy law with the expiry of the old § 110 EnWG on 3 August 2011. Further explanations on issues relating to the transition from object networks to closed distribution networks can be found in the position paper on pages 20 et seq.

Closed distribution grids whose construction took place after 3 August 2011 also require a grid operation permit in accordance with § 4 of the Energy Industry Act.
The first commencement of operation of an energy supply network must be reported to the energy supervisory authority of the State of Schleswig-Holstein.
