SAIDI Index for Gas Security in 2014 Up Against 2013 Figure – Level with Previous Years Without Major Accident

The so-called SAIDI index (System Average Interruption Duration Index), which indicates the average time of interruptions of the gas supply per connected end consumer, went up from just 0,64 min/a in 2013 to 1.257 min/a, the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) informed. This is comparable with other years in the period 2006 and 2012. Including an accident at a high-pressure pipe that did not effect standard rate customers (Tarifkunden), the SAIDI index for 2013, however, went up to 16,801 min/a.

BNetzA: SAIDI Security of Supply Results for Electricity Improved in 2014 – Hot Weather Requires Grid Management at High Cost

The security of supply in the electricity sector remained on a high level, even improving again in 2014, the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) informed. System disruptions per connected end customer measured according to the System Average Interruption Duration Index (SAIDI) fell from 15.32 minutes in 2013 to 12.28 minutes in 2014, the lowest level since BNetzA started SAIDI records in 2006. Yet the management of the grids is getting increasingly costly for consumers, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reports.

BNetzA: Security of Supply Remains High Despite Slight Rise in Average Electricity Interruptions in 2012

System interruptions in the electricity sector measured according to the System Average Interruption Duration Index (SAIDI) rose slightly from 15.31 minutes in 2011 to 15.91 minutes in 2012, yet  were still well below the average of 17.44 minutes in the period from 2006 to 2010, the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) reported. President Jochen Homann excluded a significant influence of the German energy policy shift towards a renewable energy supply and from an increasingly decentralised electricity input.
