E.ON has more green electricity than customers need

Published data confirm E.ON’s outstanding contribution to the energy transition in Germany E.ON has more green electricity in its German distribution grids than end-customers can use. On average it is almost some percent more than the actual electricity sales via the grids of Avacon, Bayernwerk, E.DIS and Schleswig-Holstein Netz. The excess electricity that cannot be distributed to customers in the operator’s own network areas is fed into the gird of the transmission system operators. E.ON’s grid operators therefore have an important role to play in the energy transition. This is also supported by the detailed figures published by the four companies for the first time today. The information made available
