Securing power from the grid is essential for any development project. But many businesses lack the relevant expertise to navigate the complexities of the process and avoid being over-charged.

Our dedicated team of experts removes the pain of securing new and upgraded grid connections by providing bespoke consultancy, or managing the entire process on behalf of our clients from application to energization and ongoing operation and maintenance.

Experience counts

Vattenfall has been designing and operating electrical distribution networks for over 120 years.  We have almost 1 million electrical network customers and own, operate, and maintain a large estate of electrical power generation infrastructure, comprising over 140,000 km of electrical networks.

Our Grid Connections Consultancy team includes electrical engineers, project managers, grid specialists, legal, regulatory and policy advisors with significant experience of the challenges involved in complex grid connection projects which enables us to fast-track development timeframes.

Our Grid Connections Consultancy service is specifically designed to support commercial developers and Local Authorities throughout the grid connection journey.

How Vattenfall IDNO can support your projects:

Power capacity assessments  
Find out how much power is available in a particular location and initiate the process of applying for power. We will present you with the best available options to secure the power you need for your development.

Apply for a grid connection 
We will apply for an ‘indicative’ or ‘firm’ quote for your grid connection on your behalf and present you with the available options. Firm quotes can incur extra cost, depending on the size of your required connection (LV/HV/EHV). We will provide you with clear pricing based on the scale of your project.

Developing your grid connection 
We will secure your grid connection and value engineer your connection design to ensure you receive the best possible value for money, and manage the development process with the DNO.

Overseeing the on-site works 
We can recommend an Independent Connection Provider (ICP) and liaise with them, and the DNO, on your behalf to ensure your connection is delivered on time. 


Whatever stage you are at with your project and grid connection requirements, whether they are for demand, generation or a combination of both, Vattenfall’s Grid Connections Consultancy team can help accelerate the grid connection process.

With complimentary businesses providing district heating, on and offshore wind power, Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) Vattenfall is also able to help clients navigate complex multi-service projects.
