Our mission

We will lead the way in the energy transition by developing diversified, sustainable and reliable on- and offshore electricity systems that open up new possibilities.

For a successful energy transition in a sustainable world

We will continue ensuring security of supply and serving our customers in an efficient, non-discriminatory way, whilst protecting the safety of our personnel and subcontractor.


Through cooperation and innovation

We operate and develop our grid infrastructure in close collaboration with all stakeholders. We are highly focused on safety and our goal is zero accidents. We are committed to innovation and continuously improve our operational systems. In Germany, we are already integrating over 56.5  percent renewable energy safely into the grid. This is how we make the energy transition happen.


In the interest of society

The electricity grid is a key pillar of the energy policy that supports our socio-economic prosperity. Elia Group aspires to be a catalyst for a successful energy transition and consequently, a reliable, sustainable and affordable energy system. By building interconnectors and integrating renewable energy generation, Elia Group promotes both the integration of the European energy market and the decarbonisation of our society.


Our core tasks

1 Grid ownership

  • We are preparing to deliver the infrastructure of the future

    We develop, build and maintain our transmission grid according to long term needs. We heavily invest in the integration of renewable energy, the development of an offshore high-voltage grid and the construction of interconnectors to facilitate the integration of the European energy market. By doing so, Elia Group drives the transition to tomorrow’s energy system.

2 System control

  • We maintain the balance
    Operating the electricity system is an increasingly complex task due to the sharp rise in renewable generation sources, the continuous arrival of new players and technologies and the development of supranational coordination. To ensure a reliable supply and efficient operational management of our grids, Elia Group monitors the electricity system in real time. This requires specialist knowledge as well as sophisticated tools and processes.

3 Market facilitation

  • We are part of the European integrated market
    Elia Group makes its infrastructure available to all  market players in a transparent, non-discriminatory way. Digitalisation and the latest technologies offer market players new opportunities to optimise their electricity management by selling their surplus energy or temporarily reducing consumption. We develop services and mechanisms allowing the market to trade on different platforms, which promotes economic competitiveness and the wellbeing of society.
