Performance indicators

We use the following performance indicators to measure our performance in the individual fields of action by means of clear and binding targets. The performance indicators installed renewable energies capacity and share of installed renewable energies capacity as well as CO intensity are defined as top performance indicators of the environmental dimension for the implementation of the EnBW 2020 Strategy.

The emissions of CO₂ from own generation of electricity for the Group, as well as the volume of electricity generated by the Group without the contribution made by the nuclear power plants, form the basis for the calculation of the key performance indicator CO₂ intensity. This performance indicator is calculated as the ratio between the emissions and the generated volume of electricity and thus specifically describes the amount of CO₂ released per kilowatt hour. By discounting the electricity generated by nuclear power plants, the performance indicator will not be influenced by the phasing out of nuclear energy in the coming years.

With the permanent change in the framework conditions for the energy industry, the strategic development of EnBW and its business portfolio continues. The new target horizon is the year 2025 with the vision of being a sustainable and innovative infrastructure partner for our customers and other stakeholders. As part of the further development of the strategy, quantitative target values for 2025 were also defined for the top performance indicators.
