The gross margin of the company rose from €9.86bn to €12.12bn.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation were €7.56bn, a 17.3% rise compared with €6.44bn in H1 2022.

This was attributed to the company’s investment in networks and renewables, recovery from the regulated standard variable tariff deficit in the UK in 2022, and improved performance in Europe.

Half-yearly earnings before interest and taxes stood at €4.91bn, a 25.2% surge from €3.92bn a year earlier.

This outweighed a rise in net operating expenses, which were 16.6% higher at €2.9bn.

Following the growth in H1, the company has raised its profit forecast for the full year. It now anticipates a high single-digit net profit growth in 2023, with additional upside in H2.
