The German electricity supply industry: Statistics and facts

Electricity providers are among the so-called utilities – companies that provide basic infrastructure services. Until the 1990s, competition on the electricity market in Germany was severely restricted and characterized by regional, legally guaranteed monopolies. Then liberalization took place within the framework of EU competition policy.

Nevertheless, even today it is still not possible to speak of unrestricted competition in electricity. Five large suppliers – E.On, RWE, EnBW, LEAG and Vattenfall – dominate about three quarters of the market. In addition, there are more than 1,000 small and smallest electricity suppliers, often with regionally narrowly defined business areas. The largest share of the remaining quarter of the market is held by municipal utilities under municipal ownership.

Free competition is also hampered by heavily regulated price fixing. It is true that electricity is freely traded on electricity exchanges. However, the market price formed here is far removed from the end consumer prices. This final price includes less than a quarter of the share for electricity generation and procurement. An almost equal share is accounted for by the EEG levy, the rest by various levies, charges (especially grid charges) and taxes (electricity and sales tax).

In recent years, the German energy industry has been characterized by the energy turnaround – conversion to renewable energies – and the phasing out of nuclear energy. The process is not yet complete. An additional challenge is the phase-out of coal to reduce CO2 emissions. In 2019, 513 billion kWh of electricity were generated in Germany. 46 percent came from renewable energies, of which a good half came from wind power, 13.7 percent from nuclear energy, 29.3 percent from coal (high lignite content!) and 10.5 percent from natural gas.

The most important questions about our list of the largest mechanical enigneering companies Germany

The companies included in the list can be found through various sources: Internet research, public registers, analysis of relevant news, investigation of relevant transactions, our extensive personal network. Hundreds of hours of detailed, high-quality research flow into each of our lists. All data points that we can enter via publicly available sources are included in our lists.

Every data point for which there is publicly available information is filled out in our lists. However, if we do not have an e-mail address or we do not know whether a company is investing in a particular area, we fill this field with an “n.a.”. In most cases we achieve a data coverage of over 90%. If you want to know the exact coverage of the list – e.g. how many e-mail addresses are available – our team will be happy to help you.

Our lists are always delivered as handy Excel files. On request we can also send you the list as a CSV file.

After purchasing the list, you can immediately download the list as an Excel file when paying by credit card or PayPal. You will also receive a download link by e-mail. Future free updates will also be sent to you by e-mail. If you pay in advance, you will receive the list after the amount has been credited to our account or you have sent us a bank transfer receipt.

We have noted the last update date in the product description at the top of the page. We update our lists regularly. Our customers receive free updates and additions to the list for at least 12 months.

Our lists contain – if publicly available – address, telephone number, e-mail addresses and management names of the listed companies. For privacy reasons, we may only include information that is publicly available or provided by the companies. If no data points are available, there is an “n.a.” in the corresponding field.

Due to the DSGVO our lists do not contain personal e-mail addresses and telephone numbers. Our lists contain publicly available contact data or contact data provided by the companies (e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, names of directors).

Our lists do not contain any personal contact data that is specifically protected by the European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). Our lists always contain publicly accessible data points (official registers such as the Commercial Register or the Federal Gazette, Internet, company websites) or data provided voluntarily by companies and are therefore harmless.
In Germany, contact is regulated by §7 UWG. Thus, postal advertising in the B2B sector is generally permitted. Contacting by telephone is permitted if the business contact is presumably interested. This can also be accepted for e-mail contact, as long as the contact is made once and the contact is not included in newsletters without being asked.
Important note: We are not lawyers and cannot make legally binding statements. If you have any open questions, please feel free to contact us.

The companies included in the lists can be contacted in various ways – by telephone, postal letter, e-mail, networks such as LinkedIn, jointly attended trade fairs. In order to establish successful contacts, it is particularly important to work on individualized addresses tailored to the respective companies. Mass letters are rarely successful. Instead, our customers are most successful when they adapt to the companies included in our lists, obtain information and then address them in a customized manner. Another successful approach is to contact them via LinkedIn, for example, by selecting the right contact person from our list and then addressing them via a consistent starting point. Intros” that are mediated via shared contacts are also a good step towards establishing contact. Also possible: at trade fairs visited together, you can use the trade fair lists to search specifically for companies included in the lists and make appointments for meetings.
In general: the more effort is put into the individual approach, the more successful it is. Think about what suitable starting points are, how you can deliver added value and show the addressed companies that you put a lot of effort into the contact. Many of our customers have already built up valuable and successful business relationships.
