Our role in the energy chain
Network operator Liander, which is an Alliander subsidiary, has been statutorily tasked with managing and further developing the gas and electricity networks. We are on hand 24/7 to deal with outages; after all, without energy everything comes to a standstill. The energy we distribute comes from power stations, wind farms and imports through the national electricity and gas networks of TenneT and Gasunie respectively. Liander collaborates with many parties in the energy sector and organisations that want to drive innovation in the field of energy. As a network operator, Liander not only ensures correct data exchange with suppliers and other parties in today’s energy market, it also works with the government at local and regional level to resolve heating transition challenges. In addition, we help organisations innovate by offering our data services and we collaborate with others to develop a flexible energy market that is driven by supply and demand. More and more consumers and companies are now feeding the energy they produce with their own systems back into our energy networks. The result is interaction and interlinking between energy supply and demand.
Other units in our network company actively facilitate markets by providing products and services that help create a future-proof energy network. We build and maintain the infrastructure, and we manage energy supply and demand. We track who produces or consumes energy: when, where, and how much.
As an independent party, we give customers the kind of insights that help them develop their energy supply. We show them exactly what the energy network can handle and are clear on the social expenditure involved in different choices. We conceive and implement innovative solutions for the future-proofing of the energy network. Sustainability plays a key role in the choices we make. This is how we are working together on an energy network that is right for everyone.
