- DB Netze Energy is becoming MORE ROBUST: DB Netze Energy is ensuring power supply while traffic volumes increase. For this purpose, the financial basis was laid for the construction of additional power converter capacities in the year under review. These are supported by the LuFV III with over € 100 million until 2024.
- DB Netze Energy is becoming MORE MODERN: DB Netze Energy is a central driver of the TOCs in Germany, as an energy provider. In order to completely switch DB traction current to renewable energies by 2038, existing fossil fuel power plant contracts will henceforth be replaced by renewable energies in an environmentally sustainable way. DB Netze Energy is working together with vehicle manufacturers, public transport authorities and Federal agencies on the piloting of appropriate supply solutions. In the year under review, feasibility studies were conducted for public transport authorities in regional rail passenger transport.
