Our energy systems and the ways in which we manage them has changed in ways we could never have imagined. Our networks are intelligent. They are efficient, adaptable, robust and highly complex. They are digital and ever-evolving. A digital layer of fiber optic now runs alongside our traditional copper infrastructure, combining systems that carry electrons with systems carrying data. 

In our future energy world, energy distribution systems will not only have to contend with two-way electron traffic between consumers and producers - they will also manage the needs of prosumers and consumers and take into account the volatile nature of renewables.

At E.ON we are proud to be leading our industry and community into this challenging and exciting new world. Working with the brightest industry minds, we are striving to maintain and prepare distribution networks across the globe with the latest technologies and operational processes.

With Copernicus on a new path towards a smart and sustainable energy system

Germany’s electricity supply is converting to renewable energy generation, the aim being to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. In the ambitious project ENSURE, E.ON subsidiary, Schleswig-Holstein Netz AG (part of the HanseWerk group), is joining forces with other industrial companies, the scientific world and civil society organisations to develop a systemic concept for a successful energy transition.

Integrating local renewables into the grid – E.ON leading the way

Solar and wind power are two of the most scalable energy sources around. However, it’s rapid and widespread growth can sometimes find spots in the grid, where physical limitations do not allow them to be connected in a quick and affordable way. 

Fostering a culture of innovation in the grid business: An interview with Dr. Alexander Montebaur

The energy world is transforming. It’s becoming increasingly decentralised with network connection points multiplying and energy flows fragmenting more and more. In this context the energy networks infrastructure becomes an essential platform where energy transition actually happens.
