The Elia Group plays a key role in the European electricity market

The Elia Group encompasses two major transmission system operators (TSOs) in two different European regions: Elia Transmission in Belgium and 50Hertz Transmission -one of four German TSOs operational in north-east Germany.

Both TSOs operate at the heart of the European electricity grid as they balance the system 24/7 to ensure a safe supply of electricity to 30 million end users.

Being a Group of TSOs in different regions has given the Elia Group a unique perspective on how the electricity system works and evolves. This has allowed the company to build a solid track-record in tackling the major challenges of the energy transition.
