Vattenfall's approach is based on existing political and societal expectations and on the directive from our owner. The latter clearly stipulates that Vattenfall should be among the leaders in developing sustainable energy production.
Biomass is a renewable energy source that can be used to produce both heat and electricity. It can potentially play a key role in reducing CO2 emissions from existing European coal power plants.
Our biomass operations
An efficient and inexpensive energy source, coal provides stable and large-scale electricity generation.
Vattenfall has century-long roots in hydro power; we own and operate over 100 hydro power plants. We are one of Europe's largest operators in hydro power and we intend to explore hydro power growth options in Europe.

Natural gas is a growing energy source within Europe that provides flexibility and security of supply. It also has lower specific CO2 emissions than other fossil fuels. Natural gas gives us a more balanced portfolio that better reflects the European energy mix.
Our natural gas operations
Nuclear power plays a vital role in many European countries. Vattenfall played a major role in constructing Sweden's nuclear power plants, and is an owner of nuclear power plants in Germany. Vattenfall is constantly intensifying its efforts to achieve impeccable safety and availability levels.

Wind power is the fastest growing energy source in Europe and plays a key role in meeting Europe's climate target. Vattenfall is one of the largest players in Europe when it comes to developing and operating wind power. Vattenfall will continue to expand its wind operations in our markets.
