Developer of energy supply and import hubs, Tree Energy Solutions (TES) – on behalf of Deutsche Grüngas und Energieversorgung GmbH (DGGEV) – has announced it is inviting market participants to submit non-binding expressions of interest for additional long-term terminal capacities from 16 October 2023.
This follows a successful open season and positive market reactions.
The total planned capacity of the zero-emission terminal is equivalent to 15 billion cubic metres (BCM) per year, which corresponds to around 17% of Germany’s gas demand in 2022.
For long-term marketing through the second procurement procedure, 3.4 BCM per year are available and will be allocated to customers on a first committed first served (FCFS) basis.
The Wilhelmshaven Green Energy Hub is a pivotal element in TES’s commitment to decarbonize Germany and neighbouring markets by facilitating the import of both conventional liquefied natural gas (LNG) and green hydrogen based electric natural gas (e-NG). The planned start-up is in 2027.
