In 2002, Mel Kroon was appointed as CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board of TenneT, which was founded in 1998 as a legal successor to the SEP (Samenwerkende Elektriciteits-Productiebedrijven). Under his leadership, Mel Kroon developed TenneT into a leading European high voltage grid operator, with an unparalleled security of supply performance for its 41 million end users. During the last two decades, TenneT saw its asset value increase from 500 million Euros to over 20 billion Euros.
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).
