Mining, technology and innovation –
energy solutions from Lusatia

LEAG supplies electricity and heat for millions of households, industry and public life – reliable in all weather conditions, flexible and affordable. This is what our approximately 7,400 employees work for. They make us the largest energy company in eastern Germany and one of the most important private sector employers in the Lusatia region. We are closely linked to Lusatia – also through the training of about 560 young people in eight different professions. Around 3,300 partner companies accompany us with supplies and services in the mining and energy sector.

The generation landscape in Germany is set to change substantially. This also means that we must introduce the necessary technologies today so that energy will continue to be reliably available in the future. For LEAG, as a mining and power plant operator, this means a corporate transformation. We are using our expertise, facilities and infrastructure to expand and further develop our business. Our goal: to be a versatile energy, infrastructure and service company that contributes equally to security of supply in Germany and to structural change in the region.

Our business fields

From a mining and power plant operator to a versatile energy, infrastructure and service company – this is our path into the future. With electricity and heat from lignite, we make a reliable and flexible contribution to energy supply along the legally defined coal exit path. At the same time, we are using our infrastructure, estate and expertise for new business areas and are keeping pace with the transformation of the energy supply industry.

Regional engagement

We are aware of our social responsibilities to the communities where our sites are located – whether it is supporting the development of young people, promoting arts and culture or encouraging sporting success.
