For using our distribution grid is the conclusion of a grid usage agreement required.

Supply to load profile customers

These customers are supplied via standard load profiles (SLP). The standard load profiles correspond to the load profiles from the Bundesverband der Energie- und Wasserwirtschaft e.V. (BDEW - National Association for the Energy and Water Industries), based on a synthetic procedure, and we make these available to download.

Customer facilities with electrical storage heaters

Customer facilities with electrical storage heaters are supplied in accordance with the process for temperature-dependent load predictions developed by the Verband der Netzbetreiber (VDN; Association of Grid Operators) and Cottbus University. More information is available to download.
