At Vattenfall, innovation is a corner stone of our business strategy. That’s why Vattenfall Innovation empowers employees and boosts an entrepreneurial and innovation culture. In doing so we are constantly looking for partnerships to move beyond our own scope, stimulate knowledge development and together reach our sustainable goals.
Why we are doing this
The energy sector is undergoing its most fundamental transformation in generations. New technologies are needed to move away from fossil fuels and develop large-scale renewable alternatives. Our role as energy company is shifting, and we need to constantly innovate our business model to stay at the forefront of the energy transition.
How we are doing this
We regard young talents as individuals who bring fresh ideas to the table and combine an innovation mindset with business insight. We regularly work with colleges and universities to spread innovation thinking and foster knowledge exchange.
Examples of previous young talent collaborations:
- The Student Master Innovation Challenge
- Exchange program with innovation lectures
Vattenfall’s goal is to enable fossil-free living within one generation with the purpose to power climate smarter living for all customers. In this mission, we encounter many like-minded companies and organisations, working towards the same goals on shared topics. We strongly believe in the need to collaborate with other businesses to develop fresh ideas and showcase innovations. Join us in our fossil-free mission!

- EV Experience Circuit Zandvoort
