Who we are

The power grid is similar to the road network. There are routes for long-distance and some for local traffic. Amprion and three other transmission system operators are responsible for the long-distance traffic in the German power grid. With 11,000 kilometres of power lines, we operate one of the longest transmission networks in Germany. It transports electricity in an area from Lower Saxony to the Alps. 29 million people live here and about a third of Germany's economic output is generated in this region.

Our transmission network is more than just a network.

Our power lines are lifelines of society. They transport electricity for millions of people and thousands of companies in our grid area. They secure people’s jobs and their quality of life. We maintain the grid in a stable and secure condition so that life can thrive.

Our assignment is more than just a statutory mandate.

We are proud of what we do. We confront the challenges of a rapidly developing energy landscape with passion and competence. In this time of transition, we are building true, tangible confidence: we do what we say. This dependability is the foundation on which we build connections with our partners. Together we are shaping the energy system of tomorrow.

Our mission is more than just a promise.

We feel an obligation to, and a connection with, humanity, the environment and the economy. With this connectedness, this feeling of solidarity, foremost in our thoughts, we are working to make our power grid more sustainable, step by step. We communicate openly and honestly and work together with our partners and with stakeholders in order to find and install the best solution.

We bring the interests of people, the environment and technology into alignment. So that the lights never go out.

Amprion connects!
