Our United Kingdom story
Vattenfall has been investing in the UK since 2008.
We have grown our wind business from one project in 2008 to 11 today. Standing on the shoulders of these gentle giants, we have recently started new businesses in heat, transport, power networks and retail. All are determined to make fossil free living possible in one generation.
We want to do all we can to make that happen. As the UK economy seeks fossil free solutions in the way we heat and power our buildings and make our journeys, the need for greater amounts of electricity from renewables is going to grow significantly.
Our new businesses
In 2017, we announced a new retail business selling power to businesses, this was quickly followed by the acquisition of iSupplyEnergy which sells power and gas to households and small businesses. Then in 2018 came Vattenfall Networks which will provide independent distribution services to businesses and public bodies. Not long after we launched InCharge, our electric vehicle charging infrastructure business. And then, Vattenfall Energy Solutions was open for business in late 2018, joining up its district heating business with all the other services and products that Vattenfall provides.
