We are primarily tasked with providing power transmission services, system services and facilitating the energy market. Our core tasks follow from our appointment as grid operator under the Dutch 'Elektriciteitswet' (E-wet) and the German 'Energiewirtschaftsgesetz' (EnWG).
TenneT is a leading European electricity transmission system operator (TSO), with activities in the Netherlands and in Germany. We strive to ensure a reliable and uninterrupted supply of electricity in our high-voltage grid for some 42 million people. In doing so, we make every effort to meet our stakeholders' needs by being responsible, engaged and connected.
Our Principles are the rules we live by at TenneT influencing how we communicate and how we behave, the decisions we make and how we work with others, both in and outside TenneT. They will support us living up to our Purpose and Promise, and are what we want people to recognise us for as we become a more flexible learning organisation.
