EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG
Playing an active role in the Energiewende
EnBW is transforming itself from a conventional energy company into a strong partner for energy and infrastructure. In the process, we are linking the transport sector with the energy and telecommunications world, for example, as part of the development of cities and districts oriented towards citizens. We accept our responsibility for the climate and are playing an active role in shaping the future of energy, which is why we are continuing to push forward the expansion of renewable energies, will remove our nuclear power plants from the grid by 2022 at the latest and have registered around 40% of our coal power plants for decommissioning since 2013. Our grid subsidiaries are ensuring that renewable energies are integrated into the electricity grid and are accelerating the development of so-called smart grids at the same time. Amongst other things, they are thus ensuring that even more renewable power plants can be connected to the grid in the future. Previously separate infrastructures such as those for energy, telecommunications and transport are beginning to converge due to digitalisation. This is why we aim to grow in this market of the future. We are already combining solar power plants with home storage systems for our customers today and enabling them to use this energy in their e-cars. We are integrating these types of solutions, as well as systems for public safety, traffic management and broadband technology, into liveable and sustainable city districts.
