What We Do

What we do

We deliver the largest, most complex district heating projects based on unrivalled engineering expertise, operational and management excellence and outstanding consumer services.

Vattenfall takes a long view from the very beginning. We work with cities, developers, engineering consultancies and supply chain to assess the long-term opportunities for district heating and transform them into reality.

We factor in the total cost of ownership from the start, balancing best-of-breed materials and components against affordable upfront costs and future requirements.

Our people make us different. We blend a rapidly growing UK team packed of subject matter experts from all over the UK energy industry, with 4000 colleagues across our district heating operations. We think this brings our partners the best of all worlds.

Transparency

We operate transparent partnerships, with no inequality of information, and are easy to work with throughout. This means that you get an experienced advisor that plans for the future and delivers transparency over how things work and what is changing.

From this strong base, we can work together with partners to plan, make good decisions and continually manage risks.

Flexibility

Long term partnerships need flexibility in abundance. Flexibility in our market means engineering, contracts and commercials which can adapt to the market.

So when environmental standards, technologies, and economics change we can adjust accordingly, quickly and without any fuss.

Responsibility

From your first meeting with our team, we have you covered. We take care of everything from de-risking to managing complexities such as technologies, relationships and community interests.

If consumers lose, you lose and we lose. We take our responsibilities seriously.
