Development of segments
The structure of the EVN Group is based on three general categories: the energy business, the environmental services business and other business activities. The energy business covers the entire electricity and heat value chain from generation and distribution to networks and supply, while the natural gas business is concentrated on the distribution and supply. This product portfolio is supplemented by the activities of EVN subsidiaries in related areas as well as regional cable TV and telecommunication services. The environmental services business involves activities in the areas of drinking water supply, wastewater disposal and thermal waste utilisation.
The definition of the operating segment is done in accordance with the requirements of IFRS 8 “Business Segments“ and is therefore based exclusively on the internal organisational and reporting structure of the EVN Group. The following section describes the operating performance of EVN’s six segments and the effects of energy sector indicators on their development.
