GSE launches new Transparency Platform AGSI+
GSE will further boost its transparency initiative
Today 17 January 2014 the new Transparency Platform of GSE, AGSI+ goes online. With this further boost of its transparency initiative GSE is preparing for full disaggregation of delivered data. As a first step AGSI+ will provide disaggregation per member state and storage operator. The full disaggregation on storage site level will follow soon. In addition planned maintenance and un-planned maintenance (outages) will be disclosed. Users will still have access to historical data and graphs. In addition they can make use of individualised analysis tools and graphs.
This further improvement requires huge efforts not only by GSE as an association but by the individual members and contributors too. Referring to this development, Nicole Otterberg, GSE President, stated: “From the start, GSE has been committed to and has rendered a great service to transparency. The launch of AGSI+ is a milestone for GSE members. We would nevertheless like to further elaborate this topic and set new standards for the future”.
Access to AGSI+ is free of charge. Currently 85% of EU technical storage capacity is represented by AGSI+, GSE invites all storage operators in Europe to join the platform.
