The energy transition is one of the great innovative projects of our times. We want it to succeed. Electricity is the lifeblood of our modern society. It enhances quality of life and makes businesses competitive. As a transmission system operator Amprion is responsible for ensuring that sufficient energy is delivered to the power point. Thus our power lines form the metaphorical lifelines of our economy. They reliably transmit power for 29 million people over a territory extending from Lower Saxony to the Alps.
Dillinger’s Heavy Plate
can be found in bridges, pipelines, offshore wind installations and heavy machinery. It is rolled from steel manufactured at temperatures of around 1,700 degrees Celsius. As an energy-intensive enterprise, Dillinger procures its electricity directly from our transmission network. Just one way in which we contribute to safeguarding jobs in Saarland and beyond.

Power is life
More than that, power is quality of life. Smartphones and mobile communications networks only function if they have a secure and reliable power supply. We lay the foundations for this through our transmission network, which transports large quantities of electricity over long distances to the places where people live and work.

By 2050 80 per cent of our electricity is set to derive from renewable energy sources
We are working towards this by expanding our transmission network to cater for the growing transport of wind and solar power. We are playing our part in actively shaping the energy transition and devising a system to ensure a future-proof and economically efficient power supply throughout Germany and Europe.

We link up industrial centres and generation facilities
Over our 11,000-Kilometre-long grid we transport electricity for 29 million people. Our remit for this comes from the legislators. We are aware of our responsibility and endeavour to live up to it round the clock, 365 days a year. Our workforce of around 1,300 people works hard to ensure that we do so.
