A stable power grid lays the foundation for our energy supply. Responsibility for the extra-high-voltage grid in Germany rests with Amprion and three other transmission system operators. Their remit is to operate a safe, efficient grid and to expand it as and when needed, under the supervision of the Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur). In so doing the operators are independent of the generation and sales arms, providing the grid in their control areas as neutral platforms for the electricity market. The transmission system operators’ customers are energy producers, distribution system operators and industry. For the power they consume they pay network charges which are controlled by the Federal Network Agency.
