We are a highly qualified team of about 20 people who work together in all disciplines in order to be able to advise and accompany you in the best possible way on tax, legal, accounting and economic matters. At the beginning of 2016, grid projects were largely covered by either the Energy Network Expansion Act (ENLAG) of 2009 or the Federal Law on Requirements of 2015 (BBPlG). ENLAG aimed to accelerate 22 urgent transport projects identified by DENA, almost all of which are expected to be completed by 2020. The completion of the Thüringer Strombrücke (or southwest interconnector) from Lauchstädt to Redwitz at the end of 2015 was an important milestone for TenneT. Another 43 projects are identified in the BBPlG, based on the 2014 version of the Network Development Plan (NDP), which TSOs submit annually to BNetzA. BBPlG projects are subject to accelerated planning procedures led by the regulator and BBPlG will bring into law in mid-2015 to prioritise underground HVDC cable cabling over overhead lines, whereas previously the opposite was true. The change is mainly the result of Bavarian resistance to overhead lines. In October 2015, the government approved plans for the underground construction of about 1,000 km of high-voltage lines from the north and near populated areas. The energy ministry has estimated that the underground option would cost between €3 billion and €8 billion more than overhead lines to add to consumers` bills, but it is expected to speed up permits. TenneT warned of costs and delays in the SuedLink (Corridor C) project.
In early 2017, the European Commission approved €40 million for an “urgent” study on Suedlink on two routes: Brunsbüttel-Großgartach and Wilster-Grafenrheinfeld. -to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. The last separated high-level waste from reprocessing in France and Britain is to be returned to Germany and stored by the end of 2024. A total of 166 large barrels with glass cans will be used, of which at least 50 are already stored in Gorleben after the last delivery from The Hague in November 2011. Each contains 28 tonnes of vitrified DHR. Another 300+ drums of canisters with compacted waste from reprocessing could immediately end up in a repository, the cans possibly in boreholes. In June 2015, the Ministry of the Environment announced a plan for a portion of these separate HLWs, whereby 26 barrels will be stored in four interim storage facilities. Five will be located in Phillippsburg and 21 at the Biblis, Brokdorf and Isar nuclear power plants.
These sites were selected as “the most appropriate from a technical, legal, procedural and political point of view”. German utilities – EnBW, E.ON, RWE and Vattenfall – welcomed the ministry`s proposal and said they would now examine it in detail “with aspects of location, cost-effectiveness and cross-sites”. E.ON said: “The four companies expressly agree to implement joint solutions that are legally approved, economically and collectively acceptable and legally secure.” Tradition is fine. But a forward-looking perspective is even more important. This is exactly what is needed to be able to react quickly and flexibly to changes in tax law and the entire legal environment. You can count on the experience and expertise you need to overcome the pitfalls of doing business in today`s complex tax and legal environment. Finally, you will appreciate our discreet approach to Northern Germany and our exceptionally qualified staff. e. Personal data must be erased to comply with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject. A draft law presented to the Bundestag in March 2013 identified 36 transport projects with a cost volume of around €10 billion as high priorities. The government wanted to reduce the time frame for new power lines to an average of four years, and the Federal Administrative Court would handle all legal cases arising from the development of power lines, a measure aimed at speeding up projects. Until now, prosecutions could be brought before local or regional courts.
Meanwhile, Germany relies on neighboring countries to channel its energy from north to south. The Czech government complained in 2012 that it was on the verge of a blackout because German wind farms were overloading its grid. In early 2014, the Bavarian government called for a moratorium on the SuedLink proposal by TenneT and TransnetBW to connect Schleswig-Holstein in northern Germany to the southern grid of the Grafenrheinfeld nuclear power plant, which was closed at the end of June 2015. It is near Schweinfurt in northern Bavaria. In September 2011, the government tax on nuclear fuel was rejected by the Hamburg Financial Court. The court expressed “serious doubts” about the compatibility of the nuclear fuel tax with the Basic Law. It granted a claim for reimbursement of approximately €96 million from E. ON and the collection of the tax on nuclear fuel was to be suspended. The first lawsuit was filed by EnBW, which paid the tax on reloading a reactor in July and quickly filed a lawsuit because the tax was unconstitutional and contrary to EU law.
The Court`s decision states that the tax is not considered a consumption tax under the Constitution, and that it should not be applied to single-use supplies such as nuclear fuel anyway. The court made its decision on the basis of these constitutional points and did not take into account any other area that the public service had challenged: whether the tax violated equality laws or EU tax directives. In October, RWE and E.ON were reimbursed €74 million and €96 million respectively. However, the government appealed the decision and resumed collection of the tax. Where processing has been restricted in accordance with the abovementioned conditions, such personal data may only be processed with the consent of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State. In October 1998, a coalition government was formed between the SPD and the Greens, which won only 6.7% of the vote. As a result, these two parties agreed to amend the law to phase out nuclear power. Long “consensus talks” with electricity suppliers were supposed to set a timetable for phasing out, with the Greens threatening to unilaterally reduce licences without compensation if no deal was reached. All nuclear power plants in operation at that time had unlimited licences with strong legal safeguards. We know how important personalized service is.
