The 50Hertz extra high voltage grid has a circuit length of about 10,200 kilometers – that is the distance from Berlin to Rio de Janeiro. 50Hertz maintains lines and substations through efficient maintenance, expands its grid to meet demand and ensure the electrical balance between energy consumers and power generators around the clock. And this is a demanding task: Over 56 percent was the share of renewable energies on the annual average consumption in the 50Hertz grid area in 2018 – and it is constantly growing. More than 1,000 employees at eight locations ensure that electricity flows around the clock in Berlin, Brandenburg, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia.
