Vattenfall IDNO provides electrical grid connections for large, commercial projects. We offer an alternative to working with your local DNO and pay business owners and developers an Asset Adoption Value.

As an Ofgem regulated Independent Distribution Network Operator (IDNO) we are licenced to work anywhere in England, Scotland and Wales. We work with developers and Independant Connection Providers (ICPs) to design safe, reliable electrical networks and connect business to the UK grid.

Once these local networks are built, we own and operate the electrical infrastructure which takes the electricity from the national transmission or distribution network to the businesses which consume the power. We also connect electricity generators to the grid, for example, solar or wind farms.

As a regulated IDNO we own the local electrical networks we adopt and are responsible for managing and operating them for the long term to ensure safe and reliable supplies for our customers.

Vattenfall Group

Vattenfall IDNO is owned by the Swedish company Vattenfall AB, one of Europe’s biggest retailers of electricity and heat and one of the largest producers of electricity. Vattenfall has been in business for more than 100 years and has a long history. Our goal is to enable fossil-free living within one generation.

Experience counts

Vattenfall is an experienced electric distribution network operator with a long history beginning in Sweden in the early 1900s. We are the largest electricity network operator in Sweden. We own, operate, and maintain a large estate of electrical power generation infrastructure, operating over 140,000 km of networks.

Electric Sustainability

For Vattenfall, electric sustainability means taking responsibility for future generations. Vattenfall uses GRI Reporting Guidelines as guiding principles for our sustainability reporting. In addition, as a signatory of the UN Global Compact, we report the company's sustainability performance every year according to the Global Reporting Initiative's guidelines.

Sustainability ratings are becoming an increasingly important consideration for investors as well as for business customers choosing energy suppliers. Vattenfall is proud to be highly ranked for its electric sustainability performance by a number of ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) rating agencies.
