Energy Networks

We build tomorrow’s smart energy networks

Smart energy networks provide the infrastructure for the new energy world.

Our smart energy networks enable our customers not only to consume green energy but also to feed their own renewable energy generation efficiently into the grid.

E.ON’s ‘intelligent grid toolbox’ combines conventional and innovative technologies, such as e.g. capacity enhancements, grid automation, digital solutions and grid analytics. It provides flexible and cost-efficient solutions, which are suitable for different regional requirements.

More and more, automated and digitized energy networks will develop towards a platform enabling all kinds of different innovative energy solutions beyond pure consumption and feed-in, such as e.g. demand side management, virtual power plants, mobility and efficient usage of storage technologies.

In brief:

  • More than 1 million kilometers of networks in Europe (including Turkey) - equivalent to 25 times around the world
  • One third of all renewables capacity in Germany is connected to our networks
  • Targeting the potential of tomorrow through 130 R&D projects, testing state-of-the-art network technologies
  • Strong track record proven in regulatory cost and efficiency benchmarks
