Four letters and the Internet revolutionise capacity booking.
With the introduction of EESy, our customers were able to very easily acquire capacity rights for the entry and exit of gas. The transaction effort dropped drastically for our customers with the introduction of EESy. New trading platforms have been implemented as web portals and market areas have been consolidated in the meantime. The marketing options through virtual trading points have thereby increased further. The fact that the virtual trading points have taken over the functions of physical entry and exit points and our customers can make bookings with the greatest flexibility and maximum comfort has become and everyday thing in the meantime. We laid the foundation with EESy.
Biogas becomes a valuable and environmentally friendly energy source for everyone.
Biogas combustion is carbon-neutral because it is produced from biogenic resources. In addition to energy crops, these are most of all slurry and organic residue. During growth, these bind precisely the carbon which is released again during combustion. It is a zero-sum game. Biogas was not able to deliver this advantage earlier, though, because it was not suitable for transmission in the gas network and use in heating in industrial facilities. In 2006, Thyssengas developed a process which makes biogas compatible with normal low-calorific and high-calorific gas. Since then it can be entered into the network, transmitted to any consumer and used like normal natural gas. Normal natural gas vehicles can now be driven in an inexpensive and environmentally friendly was using biogas. Our video shows how it works.

Thyssengas – Germany's first independent gas network operator.
In 2011, RWE sold its subsidiary Thyssengas to the Australian infrastructure investor Macquarie. This was founded in 1969 and has more than 13,900 employees in 29 countries. The company is considered one of the leading investors in the area of infrastructure and manages assets in the amount of approximately EUR 287 billion (as of 31 March 2014). Since 2011, Thyssengas has been a part of Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund 3 (MEIF 3), a closed-end fund established in 2010 with a volume of EUR 1.2 billion. Other companies in the fund include Brussels Airport, Copenhagen Airports and České Radiokomunikace.
Since spinning off from the energy company RWE, the Dortmund company Thyssengas has been considered a pioneer in the industry which operates in the market independently and with the utmost efficiency and success with its own independent management concept.
Thyssengas – success and financial power confirmed by S&P.
The requirements of the big rating agencies have become extremely demanding for the awarding of "A" ratings, particularly in recent years. We are therefore especially proud of the very good "A-" rating received from the international rating agency Standard & Poor's in the very first rating of the independent Thyssengas GmbH. Our customers and partners can be certain that they have a healthy and strong partner at their side who will be able to fulfil all of the conditions for even the largest projects.
At the end of 2014, Standard & Poor's raised our rating even higher up to an "A".
For us, this is confirmation that we have taken the right course of independence and a strict focus on performance.
