The Group is organized around two Transmission System Operators. In early 2014, Elia Grid International was founded.
Elia, the Belgian transmission system operator, holds licences for its 380 kV to 150 kV national grid and for its 70 kV to 30 kV grids in Belgium’s three regions.
50Hertz, one of Germany’s four transmission system operators and active in the north-eastern part of the country, is held jointly by Elia (60%) and Industry Funds Management (40%).
Elia Grid International (EGI) is a 50/50 joint venture between Elia and 50Hertz. To face new challenges in the energy industry and to proactively use new opportunities as a grid operator, the Elia Group offers its know-how now to the international market via this new subsidiary.
