Thanks to the high share of electricity generated from renewable sources in the 50Hertz grid, the company contributes to the assertion of the federal states Berlin, Brandenburg, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia as attractive industrial locations.
The industry requires green electricity if it wants to make its production in Germany and Europe climate-neutral in the future. This not only includes the classic primary industries such as steel, copper, aluminium, chemical and cement, but also new players, like the digital industry with its high energy-consuming data centres. Each of these companies will want to remain or settle there where they can fully cover their energy demand with renewables.
The east of Germany and Hamburg offer the best conditions to become an internationally leading region for these future industries.
Companies interested in being connected to the 50Hertz grid can find all information on the grid connection procedure and the corresponding contacts here.
„In the future, the demand for a regenerative energy supply will influence investment plans and, therefore, decisions regarding locations. The reason for this is that green electricity is a decisive factor in the carbon footprint of industrial companies. By reducing the footprint, they become more attractive to investors.“
