GASCADE – an independent transmission system operator

The transport business of GASCADE Gastransport GmbH is not subject to the influence of a shareholder. GASCADE is a company under German law, has been organized as an independent, fully regulated transmission system operator on the basis of the German Energy Industry Act (EnWG) for the past ten years and is accordingly certified by the German Federal Network Agency. That means GASCADE is obligated by law to conduct its transmission business in a non-discriminatory manner and independently of its shareholders’ interests. An internal compliance program, a Compliance Officer and the Federal Network Agency supervise whether these obligations are met.
