    Goals / Remit

    50Hertz operates the electricity transmission system in the north and east of Germany, which it expands as needed for the energy transition. Our extra high voltage grid has an electrical circuit length of about 10,200 kilometres, or the distance between Berlin and Rio de Janeiro.

    The 50Hertz control area covers the Länder of Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia, as well as the city states of Berlin and Hamburg. Within these regions, 50Hertz ensures grid and system stability; about 1,100 employees ensure that about 18 million people are supplied with electricity around the clock.

    50Hertz is a forerunner in the field of secure integration of renewable energy: in our grid area, more than 60 percent of the electricity consumed is already generated from renewable sources, and the trend is rising. The shareholders of 50Hertz are the Belgian transmission system operator Elia (80 percent) and the Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (20 percent).
