E.ON Energiakereskedelmi Kft.
Questions and answers in connection with the competitive-market power business
In 2018, the German E.ON and the RWE Group made an agreement on a far-reaching exchange of assets and participations. For Hungary, this means that through this transaction, the E.ON Group has become a sole owner in the ELMŰ-ÉMÁSZ Group.
The European Commission approved the transaction and the German E.ON undertook commitments that affect E.ON’s business in Hungary as well. Based on this, the European Commission required the E.ON Hungária Group to sell its power business on the competitive retail power market, as well as any of its activities closely related to it.
Accordingly, as of May 1, 2020, E.ON Energiamegoldások Kft will be providing our services in the wholesale and retail natural gas and the wholesale electricity businesses, in addition to providing energy solutions. E.ON Áramszolgáltató Kft will be serving our customers in the universal power business and will be providing monthly insurance services. E.ON Energiakereskedelmi Kft, which was sold, will continue to provide services in the competitive retail power business.
The above changes were introduced by E.ON through a legal transaction (spin-off) that will ensure uninterrupted supply for the affected users by a legal successor.
As of September 23, 2020, E.ON Energiakereskedelmi Kft is not part of the E.ON Hungária Group; it is a member of the Audax Group.
The change was necessary in order for the E.ON Hungária Group to fulfill the obligation required by the European Commission and to be able to sell its electricity business on the competitive retail power market, as well as any of its activities closely related to it.
E.ON Energiakereskedelmi Kft will continue to be responsible for the competitive retail power business. Your existing electricity contract and its terms and conditions will not change. Supply will be uninterrupted, and you do not have to do anything.
Competitive-market electricity retail contracts will not be affected by any changes, regardless of their duration, and our goal is to maintain our long-term partnership for the future.
