Reminder: Conversion to daylight saving time

23 Mar 2016

On gas day 26 March 2016 there will be a switch from winter time to summer time. This means that this gas day will have 23 hours. To avoid any problems which may occur, please be aware of the following:

  • EnergyStock expects nominations according to the EDIGAS protocol. This means that a nomination for this gas day (26 March) consists of 23 hours in which, translated to UTC, the nomination for that day begins at 05:00 UTC (06:00 LET) and ends at 04:00 UTC (also 06:00 LET). When using ENOM with appropriate settings, this feature is facilitated when nominating for this gas day. When not using ENOM, please make sure that EDIGAS messages will have this timeframe.
  • If possible please try to avoid sending nominations between 01:00 LET and 03:00 LET. Due to possible technical limitations, incoming nominations may be handled differently from the normal process and consequently introduce an extra risk.
