Working at terranets bw

We live energy. As a transmission system operator, we stand for the secure and reliable supply of natural gas – 24/7. With approximately 300 employees at nine locations in Baden-Württemberg and Hesse, we transport gas from Lower Saxony to Lake Constance. 

As an infrastructure provider, we also guarantee trouble-free operation of telecommunication networks in Baden-Württemberg. Running parallel to our gas transmission grid, our fibre optic network forms the basis of a digital infrastructure for high-speed networks. 

We have our sights set on the future. After phasing out coal and nuclear energy, successful implementation of the energy transition will depend on a secure energy supply. This is ensured by the reliable supply of gas that is available even when no wind is blowing and the sun is not shining. And because of rising demand for gas transmission in the next years, we are extensively developing our transmission grid. 

In the long term, we will use the existing transmission infrastructure to transport green gases. Today already, we are actively working on the transformation of the energy system and are preparing our grid for conversion to hydrogen. We are thus making a significant contribution to a CO2-neutral supply of energy.
