The CRU has, on 19 May 2020, published a Call for Evidence Paper titled ‘Gas Transmission Tariff Methodology – Tariff Network Code Article 28 Call for Evidence’. The call for evidence is seeking input into a detailed review of multipliers, seasonal factors and discounts (e.g. discount for Virtual Reverse Flow). These items impact how the costs of the gas network are charged to shippers and may in turn impact on customers’ bills.
The CRU has made the decision not to the change multipliers, seasonal factors and discounts again for gas year 2020/21. This decision was made to allow time for a thorough review to be completed. The paper published today calls on feedback as to the criteria to be used in the review as well as evidence to support the review. Such evidence will build on that currently available to the CRU. The completion of the review is seen as important so as to avoid any unintended impacts of changes to the multipliers, seasonal factors and discounts. The review will provide further evidence to support any recommended changes for the gas year 2021/22.
This document group also contains information on the transmission tariffs for the gas year 2019/20 and the CRU’s Tariff Network Code Article 30 Information Paper. The Article 30 Information Paper provides a single resource for all gas network transmission tariff related information, ranging from; how the CRU sets tariffs on an annual basis, the variables that cause changes in the tariffs from one year to the next, and the tariffs for the upcoming gas year.
