Do not miss the reporting obligation pursuant to Section 19 (2) StromNEV levy as of 31 March 2024!

Meldepflicht gemäß § 19 Abs. 2 StromNEV

We would like to draw your attention to important information for companies in the industrial, SME and commercial sectors: The Reporting obligation pursuant to Section 19 (2) StromNEV is imminent. The law stipulates that final consumers with an annual consumption of more than 1,000,000 kWh per point of delivery must be informed by 31.03.2024 report the electricity purchased from the grid and consumed by themselves in 2023 to their respective grid operator.


For electricity volumes exceeding 1,000,000 kWh consumed by the company itself in 2023, the levy in accordance with Section 19 (2) StromNEV will then be favoured in end consumer group B:

LV Group A*: 0.417 ct/kWh (net)
LV Group B*: 0.050 ct/kWh (net)
LV group C*: 0.025 ct/kWh (net)

Final consumer group A*

Electricity quantities of final consumers for the first 1,000,000 kWh per consumption point.

End consumer group B*

Final consumers whose annual consumption at a consumption point exceeds 1,000,000 kWh shall additionally pay a maximum Section 19 StromNEV levy of 0.050 ct/kWh for electricity purchases exceeding 1,000,000 kWh.

End consumer group C*

Final consumers who are assigned to the manufacturing industry, rail-bound transport or railway infrastructure and whose electricity costs exceeded 4 percent of turnover in the previous calendar year shall pay a maximum Section 19 StromNEV levy of 0.025 ct/kWh for electricity purchases exceeding 1,000,000 kWh.
Companies can have the end consumer group C* certified by an auditor or a certified accountant on the basis of the previous year. The auditor's certificate must be sent to the local grid operator by 31 March of the year.

Don't miss the deadline of 31 March 2024!

If you have not consumed all of the electricity purchased from the grid yourself, you must notify the grid operator of the quantities of electricity passed on to third parties in 2023. Most grid operators provide a notification form on their website for this purpose. You cannot claim any benefits from the surcharges for the amount of electricity passed on to third parties. These quantities of electricity not consumed by the customer must be recorded using calibrated meters in accordance with Section 33 (2) MessEG.

The privileged treatment for quantities >1,000,000 kWh/a only applies to the § 19 StromNEV levy. Other levies are excluded from this regulation.

Important note

It is strongly recommended that you submit this notification even if you have already been charged the reduced rate. If you do not submit the notification, there is a risk that the grid operator will retroactively demand the higher rate.

If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact us or arrange an online appointment directly.
