Strategy

We are passionate about our business and aim to deliver the maximum benefit for society in the most financially viable way for our broad range of stakeholders.

Leading European TSO for sustainable growth

We employ approximately 4,500 people and have a turnover of EUR 4.2 billion. TenneT is one of Europe’s major investors in national and cross-border grid connections on land and at sea, bringing together the Northwest European energy markets and driving the energy transition. The energy transition is one of the most impactful challenges facing society and energy supply. After a period of strong growth and as a key player in the energy market, TenneT is also restructuring to be prepared for its pivotal role in the energy transition. This means TenneT is transforming for sustainable growth based on four strategic pillars:

  1. Energise our people and organisation, with an inclusive and safe environment where people enjoy coming to work. We are building a leadership model that empowers, inspires and creates growth opportunities, so everyone can perform at their best and work as one.

  2. Drive the energy transition as a green grid operator and thought leader, developing innovative instruments and establishing a key role in the energy data world.

  3. Secure supply today and tomorrow, by maintaining the grid to meet reliability targets and operating it to its maximum capability. We will design solutions for balancing the grid in the future, while meeting societal objectives and realising our grid projects as promised.

  4. Safeguard our financial health, by implementing a regulatory framework to support our strategy and by delivering a return in line with what our capital providers expect, as well as by raising the necessary external financing.

We take every effort to meet the needs of society by being responsible, engaged and connected. Driving the energy transition.
