The property owner is TransnetBW GmBH, and is therefore responsible for the transmission grids, which is certified as an independent transport grid operator in accordance with the requirements of the Energy Industry Act. Our subsidiary Netze BW GmbH, the largest distribution grid operator in Baden-Württemberg, is responsible for the distribution grids.
The electricity grid from our subsidiary has a total length of around 155,000 km. We place particular importance on our grid for the success of the energy system transformation and are therefore investing in its expansion. As the owner of the infrastructure, our subsidiary is expanding the power grid and upgrading it with intelligent technology – especially at the distribution grid level – so that increasingly more decentralised renewable energy can be fed into the grid.
The transport and distribution of gas is also part of our business. The gas distribution network is also in the hands of Netze BW; with our shareholding in terranets bw GmbH, we are also active at the level of the natural gas pipeline network.
