The backbone of a country

Smooth supply with electricity and heat is an indispensable commodity of our
time. As a result, in addition to the production, the transport of electricity and heat
from the production to the house connection plays an important role. Life
is only comfortable when electricity is available from the socket and heating
provides a pleasant indoor climate. Good planning, properly functioning infrastructure, permanent system management and close cooperation with partners are required so that the electricity grids and local and district heating networks function.
