One of my customers has asked for their drawings to be supplied in Eplan format.  Is it possible, and if so, how do I convert a project / drawings to Eplan format???

EPlan is database-driven by its own proprietary database structure.  There is no conversion utility available to transfer from the open architecture of AutoCAD Electrical into the proprietary database structure of EPlan.

You cannot export to eplan, but eplan can import DWG-files. However, the drawings will be "dumb" like paper drawings.
