Decentralised solutions

We offer a variety of decentralised energy solutions.

Vattenfall offers its customers product and service solutions for sustainable and efficient energy production and consumption. We offer a variety of decentralised energy solutions in most of our markets, including electric vehicle charging, local power generation such as rooftop solar panels, heating solutions including heat pumps and storage technologies. Vattenfall also offers customised decentralised and integrated energy solutions to property owners.

We help our customers develop low-carbon buildings.

We help our customers develop low-carbon buildings, districts and cities and improve the energy performance by providing integrated energy solutions for heating & cooling, decentralised production, storage, EV-charging and energy management.

Integrated and decentralised energy solutions are a strategic focal point for Vattenfall. Systems that integrate local production, excess heat/cooling, storage and consumption, as well as large-scale central assets, will support the increased use of decentralised energy systems in buildings and districts. Municipalities, companies and consumers increasingly demand partners that can advise, design, install, operate and finance integrated energy solutions. Heat is a natural centrepiece in integrated energy solutions and it will take on an essential role also in less densely populated areas.

Energy sharing

In the Netherlands, we offer a market place for energy sharing called Powerpeers.

Battery storage systems

Energy storage and grid stability are among the most important issues in the new energy world. Vattenfall is driving the transition to a new energy landscape and supporting greater integration of renewable energy. Battery storage systems play a vital part and Vattenfall has already launched numerous battery projects. Large-scale batteries deployed in connection with wind farms help reduce costs for both the wind farm and the battery plant by sharing the same infrastructure and at the same time offer flexibility to the grid operator. In addition, batteries provide fossil free storage solutions at the customers' premises and offer uninterrupted power supply for data centres by replacing diesel generators.

Batteries also enable customers to make their consumption more flexible by using Peak shaving. Peak shaving is a technique to reduce electrical power consumption during periods of maximum demand and therefore reduce costs.
