Before the acquisition DONG Energy was represented on the German energy market with the Hamburg based wholesale company DONG Energy Sales GmbH. 15 March 2010, the name of KOM-STROM was changed to DONG Energy Germany AG. KOM-STROM AG held a strong client base in the Southern part of Germany and with the acquisition DONG Energy went from a presence primarily in the Northern part of Germany to covering all parts of Germany. DONG Energy also gained a broader scale of products as KOM-STROM was strong in power sales to Stadtwerke and industrial customers and DONG Energy was strong in gas sales.
