In it, the provider of the enPORTAL connect energy platform shows the immense cost increases that will result in the future for SMEs that require 5 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year. For the five locations analysed, the range varies between 21 and 65 percent difference compared to the previous year, leading to cost increases in the six-figure range for the latter. The 14-page analysis provides practical energy knowledge and is aimed at interested energy buyers, who can request the document free of charge from the enPORTAL connect website.
Grid fee analysis 2024: Record increase and immense additional costs
Medium-sized companies in Germany will be paying record grid fees in 2024. Grid fees are a significant cost factor for energy supply and make a considerable contribution to companies' overall expenditure. enPORTAL's newly published information brochure "Grid fee analysis 2024" shows how grid fees will change for a company with an annual consumption of 5 gigawatt hours (5,000,000 kilowatt hours) in Hamburg, Dresden, Frankfurt, Munich and Düsseldorf. The information brochure goes back in time and looks at the changes in grid fees since 2021, revealing that the increase and the difference compared to the previous year have never been as high as they will be in 2024, regardless of location. Medium-sized companies in Dresden, for example, will pay up to 64.6 per cent more than in the previous year, or €113,304. Companies in Frankfurt and Munich also pay six-figure sums. Companies in Hamburg and Düsseldorf have to expect five-figure increases compared to the previous year. "The sharp cost changes are hitting many SMEs hard and will be clearly noticeable in the total cost of electricity," says Clemens Graf von Wedel, Managing Director of enPORTAL.
Automated energy data management enables immediate cost forecasts
In order to carry out the analysis for the information brochure, the IT service provider created a fictitious 5 GWh customer on its energy platform and linked it to the automatically imported grid charges. These come from the database operator, which ene ' t GmbHwhich enPORTAL has been working with since it was founded in 2008. As with all other customers of the IT service provider, all past and future energy costs can be viewed and managed immediately at the click of a mouse. The tedious task of researching grid charges and linking them to your own consumption data is now a thing of the past. "With our 2024 grid fee analysis, we show how quickly we can call up and display the new electricity costs depending on the location. This is possible because we have digitalised and automated the linking of individual consumption data with published grid charges on our platform," says Clemens Graf von Wedel.
Economic forecasts for SMEs available at the click of a mouse
Since the new grid fees were announced, they have been stored on the enPORTAL connect energy platform for all customers with their individual consumption data and consumption points. Users of enPORTAL connect include medium-sized companies from the industrial, retail and commercial sectors, as well as numerous chain stores, hospitals and property management companies. "With enPORTAL connect, economic forecasts of energy costs are possible at the click of a mouse immediately after public grid charges, levies, surcharges and taxes are announced," says Clemens Graf von Wedel.
