Is it bad to care too much about it?

We care because the best energy is human.

“We don't talk a lot, we'd rather get involved! Because we connect people and companies, turn night into day and bring electromobility to every place. We are there for our communities and their residents! ”(Harry, with the company for 30 years)

Days a year and also in emergency situations

we are on site and take care of it. We ensure that Baden-Württemberg is safely and reliably supplied with energy around the clock - our control centers and standby services are also in action on public holidays and at night. Our fault hotlines are manned 24 hours a day.

We'll take care.

Locations allow us to act quickly

In order to be able to supply the state, we are rooted all over Baden-Württemberg. Our network area extends over 17,458 km² - this area is roughly 33 times the area of ​​Lake Constance.

People are behind Netze BW

Our employees make a promise, they take care of it! You come from the Ländle and identify very much with the company. According to the "employee satisfaction index", we belong to the top third of companies in Germany.

The best energy is human.

Apprentices and students

We take care of our offspring! We take around 500 young people by the hand every year to make them fit for their dream jobs. We are an industry role model in education and training and train commercial and technical professions in seven training centers. We support students. By the way: Technology is not just for boys - more and more girls are also helping to shape the energy transition here in technical areas.

"We make sure that the electricity comes reliably into your sockets, that you have a warm home, that the cities glow and that companies can work smoothly. To do this, we keep our networks in good working order and invest in the networks of the future."

our power grid is long

This length is around 2.5 times around the earth! We plan, operate and maintain our high, medium and low voltage network and continuously expand it. The grid connection of renewable energies plays an important role in the expansion of this distribution network.

around 14 times as long as the Neckar

is our gas network in the high, medium and low pressure range. It usually runs unnoticed and invisible underground. We take on the planning, construction, operation and maintenance of this network and operate gas storage facilities at two different locations.

Circuits in our control centers

are required every year to manage our networks and keep them stable. Our on-site employees keep an eye on our networks around the clock and use appropriate switching measures to coordinate network maintenance, disruptions, network expansion measures and construction work by third parties.

Security of supply

make us proud and owe them to the commitment of "our team". Because: Not all influences on our network can be planned, we are often subject to force majeure - be it weather influences, "digger bites" or even a hot air balloon. Disruptions require a high degree of flexibility, speed and brains. In the event of a malfunction, we are quickly on site thanks to our presence in the area.

We take responsibility.

"We act sustainably and future-oriented in order to leave behind a livable society and environment for future generations. We are committed to social issues, education and sport. We live the responsibility that we have - on both a small and a large scale."

The services that we offer for reporting back meter readings are wide-ranging - this also includes the option of sending us a photo of the electricity meter display. Since the quality of the submitted images varies greatly, it is difficult to read them out digitally and must be viewed personally. The Hanauerland workshops of Diakonie Kork do this for us! People who have been torn from their familiar life by a stroke or similar and have been dependent on a wheelchair ever since. The cooperation works great - a real win-win situation for both sides!

Our contribution to the optimization of the training of the volunteer fire brigades

So-called "hot" exercises sensitize rescue workers to the dangers that arise when extinguishing distribution systems and substations, for example. That is why we decided years ago to make an unusual purchase - volunteer fire brigades can train in one of our six "mobile fire protection systems". Specialist lectures and inspections in electricity and gas operating systems complete the concept.

We take responsibility.

Beautification of utility buildings

Substations and transformer stations are inherently dull and gray. In order to give our fellow human beings happier prospects, we spice them up together with artists and in cooperation with schools. Already seen?

Tons of CO₂

We save annually by using our company fleet of over 200 electric vehicles.

The energy transition is taking place in the distribution network.

"We are already working on the next generation network. We offer municipalities, companies and private customers direct access to the energy future in the state - our technological processes, the use of intelligent network technologies, our network expansion, our innovative thinking and future-oriented action make this possible."

The energy transition is taking place in the distribution network.

Systems for generating renewable energies

are connected to our network. The installed capacity roughly corresponds to the consumption of 758,000 four-person households.

In Ostfildern we are testing how e-mobility affects the power grid. And that in the middle of everyday life! What happens if all of the residents on the same street, which are supplied with energy via a circuit, suddenly switch to electric vehicles? To find out, we equipped ten households with e-cars and charging infrastructure for their homes. Our goal: to get to know people's charging behavior and the direct effects on the power grid. The second step is to test options for optimizing network stability directly in practice.

Eco-efficiency in the substation - a new chapter in the history of electrical engineering could have been opened in Nördlingen: With innovative switching technology in the high-voltage area. The switches and transducers manage without the switching and insulating gas sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). Together with Netzgesellschaft Ostwürttemberg DonauRies GmbH (NGO), we have extensively modernized the shared substation.

We carry out Germany's largest field test in 113 municipalities.
