Vattenfall integrates energy systems to deliver reliable low carbon heat solutions. We aspire to bring low carbon solutions to the UK using our previous experience from centralised and decentralised projects.
Low-carbon heating is a complex problem that will involve ever increasing complex solutions, combining heat and electricity. We can manage this complexity to deliver value driven low-carbon solutions.
We offer solutions integrating large scale heat networks, solar power, electricity infrastructure, e-mobility, storage technologies and digital platforms. We combine the benefits of both decentralized and centralized energy production to deliver a service fitting the demands of the next generation of infrastructure in the UK.
For Vattenfall, reliability means it works as we said it would. Our reliability as a partner in the delivery of heat networks comes from marrying legacy and experience with a track record of successfully implementing innovations. From initial concept design through to the construction and operation. Whether approaching network extensions which add 50,000 new customers to our networks every year or implementing innovations like 120MW thermal stores and three 13MW heat pump installations, Vattenfall makes it work. We operate 11GW of heat generating assets across Europe, including: 15 large CHP plants, 6 condensing plants, and 320+ decentralised installations with a combination of micro-CHPs, heat pumps, and solar panels.
In partnership with cities and developers we are driving the transformation towards fossil-free heating solutions. Partnerships ensure alignment of common objectives and joint decision making, in a transparent environment: sharing the risks and rewards to achieve project success. The time scales associated with heating infrastructure means that the future is uncertain. Partnerships allow for adaptability to changing regulation as well as flexibility towards technology innovation. With a heritage of strong partnerships in joint ventures, research and innovation projects, Vattenfall sees strength in partnering. Vattenfall acknowledges that we do not have all the answers, and that by working together we can all be more successful.
