- We have been efficiently realising an ambitious investment programme for many years. We will finance our intentions inter alia from the funds obtained from the cooperation with BGK. Building new generating capacities and modernising the distribution networks we have not only increased the Group's value but also enhanced the national energy security – emphasises Dalida Gepfert, vice-president of Enea for financial affairs.
