Key figures

2019 was another milestone year in our ambitious CAPEX programme to strengthen and extend our Belgian and German grid, both on- and offshore. Major infrastructure projects have been delivered on time and within budget.

We are making the energy transition possible and ensuring that it is progressing at the right pace

Our annual results reflect the excellent performance in our core activities. One of the most significant achievements was the rise in our share of 50Hertz to 80%, giving us full control of the company. The transaction will enable us to strengthen the collaboration between Elia in Belgium and 50Hertz in Germany and underscores our growth ambitions to become a leading Group of transmission system operators in the integrated European energy system. Belgium and Germany are facing specific challenges in achieving the energy transition.
