Our role in the energy sector

As a network company, Alliander is responsible for the distribution of energy, such as electricity, gas, biogas and heating. We do not produce or trade energy ourselves. This is done by energy suppliers, buyers and traders. The vast majority of the energy we distribute in our regions comes from energy plants and wind farms through the international and national energy networks of TenneT and Gasunie. In addition, a growing number of consumers and businesses are feeding their self-generated energy into our networks. This is making the energy supply chain more dynamic. Alliander ensures that all energy is distributed as safely and efficiently as possible from source to end user - for instance, from wind turbines to households or electric vehicle charging points.
