The Energy Management function of 50Hertz deals with all energy business management operations. Its mission is clearly distinct from the tasks of System Management, with the function assuming technical responsibility for system operation. In addition to procuring energy for grid losses and system support services, Energy Management is also in charge of managing balancing groups and of dealing with renewable energies (EEG business) and with output from cogeneration plants (CHP business).
As a key component of Energy Management, the Front Office represents the company’s direct point of access to the day-ahead and intraday market of 50Hertz, working along the lines of an exchange and providing access also to third parties.
On an international level, Energy Management takes an active part in developing the European market regions "Central West Europe" (CWE), "North Europe" (NE) and "Central East Europe" (CEE), closely cooperating with its foreign TSO counterparts, exchanges and regulators.
The role of Energy Management is to act as an interface of 50Hertz with the liberalised electricity market. Its employees ensure power procurement and marketing around the clock.
