Distribution system operator

Gas distribution in Austria

DSO is a company responsible for the distribution of gas in a given area. It takes care of the operation, maintenance and expansion of the distribution grid as well as the connections to other networks. Its aim is to ensure that there is enough gas to meet demand.

There are currently 21 gas distribution system operators in Austria, each of which is responsible for distributing gas in their grid area, i.e. a geographically specified part of Austria.
