Procedure for defining traction current grid access

The procedure for defining the further development of the business processes for access to the traction current grid, which was initiated by BNetzA in 2019, was finalized in late June 2022. The definition ensured the transparency and enforceability of the access rules and improved communication deadlines for all market partners (electricity suppliers, train operating companies, vehicle owners and traction current grid operators). On this basis, both DB Netze Energy and the train operating companies, traction unit owners and other traction current suppliers are now working on the implementation of the new access rules by July 1, 2026. However, the definition has left some crucial implementation issues open. In order to answer these open questions and to support the implementation of the definition on the part of the market partners, the traction current grid operator DB Netze Energy is currently in exchange with train operating companies and associations in order to jointly develop a list of implementation questions and to hand this over to BNetzA. At the same time, the traction current grid operator DB Netze Energy has launched a consultation of the electronic message formats, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.
