ACCESS TARIFFS (ATR)
What is the meaning of the acronym ATR?
The acronym ATR stands for “Third-Party Access to the Network” in Spanish. It refers to the permit granted by the distributor to the owner of the supply point so that it can access the network on the free market.
The body responsible for guaranteeing this access is Red Eléctrica de España (REE). It calculates the system’s operating costs that are then covered by access tariffs, which are set by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism and reviewed periodically.
Here we show you the access rates as established in circular 3/2021 of the CNMC, through the publication of resolution 4565 published in the BOE of March 23, 2021 that establishes the values of the access tolls to the transport networks and distribution, and Order TED / 371/2021 published in the BOE of April 19, 2021, which establishes the prices of charges for the electricity system and payment for capacity, with application from June 1, 2021.
