About the Elia Group
A Group of leading TSOs at the heart of the European electricity system
The Elia Group encompasses two major transmission system operators (TSOs) in two European regions: Elia
Transmission in Belgium and 50Hertz
Transmission, one of the four German TSOs in north-east Germany (in cooperation with Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau KfW, since August 2018).
Both TSOs operate at the heart of the European electricity system as they provide vital links between the various electricity producers and their 30 million end users. The Group’s high voltage network, with its intricately meshed 18,600 km grid, transports the electricity generated by the producers to the distribution system operators and major industrial consumers. In addition, interconnectors with several neighboring countries allow electricity trade in wider European energy markets.
