A power grid is something very special. We are responsible for the secure electricity supply of about 18 million people, and are aware of this extraordinary responsibility. That is why we like to perform our work in a transparent way: offline in front of the many visitors to our head office, and online by publishing important data about our grid, even including information that we are not legally obliged to disclose. Transparency is part of our corporate culture. That is why we have, for example, been publishing the hourly load on our lines for the last five years; and we are the only German transmission system operator to do so. We regularly publish further data underregelleistung.net.
Whether the wind is blowing or the sun is shining, we publish our extrapolation and forecast for wind and solar power every 15 minutes.
Are you looking for statistical data on the electricity grid? In our Almanac you will find all the information you need, from installed capacity to feed-in, exchange and transport to system management in our control area.
50Hertz actively participates in the energy transition debate. There are many ideas on how to shape the energy supply of the future. Our transparent lobbying and our positions demonstrate how we evaluate different subjects.
The Southwest Coupling Line (SWKL) is one of 50Hertz' most important lines. It helps society to spend less for congestion management everyday. That sums up to millions and millions. How much we saved in the interest of society shows our calculator.
