Grids are our most important business, this is where Energiewende happens - E.ON CEO


The energy transition will mainly play out in power grids in the years to come, according to E.ON CEO Johannes Teyssen. In an interview with the business magazine Wirtschaftswoche, he said grids were his company’s most important business, which also offered the greatest potential. Grids would “find an entirely new technical basis in the years to come. Power grids will become digital. Distribution grids that transport power on a regional level will become the internet of the energy transition”.
