Energy supply
and grid operators

“Power to the people”: Providing the consumer with a sufficient supply of energy is key.

The current rises –
theb grid remains stable

Energy supply means the supply of electricity, heat and fuels. Presently, energy supply still relies heavily on fossil energy sources. In view of climate change and for the sake of future generations, renewable energy sources such as wind power or solar energy are becoming increasingly important. The greatest challenge for the future lies in suitable storage solutions for renewable energies.

Frequently asked questions about energy supply

How much electricity is generated in Germany per year?

In 2020, around 488 billion kilowatt hours of electricity were generated. Around half of this electricity came from renewable energies – and the trend is constantly rising.

What is the composition of the electricity price?

The electricity price is made up of the following components: Electricity tax, grid usage fees, EEG surcharge, §19 StromNEV surcharge, CHP surcharge, offshore liability surcharge, disconnection fee, concession fee, procurement and distribution costs, and value-added tax.

What are renewable energies?

This refers to energy that is generated from sustainable sources such as the sun, wind, hydropower, or geothermal energy. Unlike fossil fuels, renewable energy sources do not consume themselves.

Why is an energy transition needed?

Conventional energy generation is not sustainable. The resulting greenhouse gas emissions combined with the enormous consumption of resources endanger the natural foundations of life. The energy transition offers a great opportunity for fundamental economic modernization. New jobs will be created, rising prices for fossil energies will be counteracted and Germany will have the opportunity to become one of the leading export nations for environment-friendly technologies.

Electricity is becoming more and more expensive - is the energy transition to blame?

Renewable energies are only responsible for around 10% of the price increase. The increased prices are mainly due to rising costs for coal, gas and oil and to supply shortages caused by increased demand.
