  • Management

With a gas transmission system spanning 12,000 kilometres, Essen-based Open Grid Europe operates is one of the biggest transmission system operators in Germany. All over the country, our approximately 1,450 staff ensure safe, environmentally-friendly and customer-oriented gas transmission. We actively support the European gas market and work together with the European distribution network operators to create the prerequisites for transnational gas transportation and trading.

Here, our self-understanding goes beyond the regulatory conditions we are subject to as a network operator: we see ourselves as a customer- and service-oriented provider and actively support the energy transition. For example by helping to improve infrastructure and minimise risks. Or by continually attempting to identify opportunities and offer innovative solutions. This applies both for large, complex projects as well as for small, detailed solutions. Why not see for yourself?
