Connectivity through energy

Connectivity through energy

Focusing on facilitating the energy transition

As a grid operator we ensure that customers can count on energy every day. In order to realise the climate goals, we are preparing our infrastructure for more renewable energy. We invested nearly one billion euros in 2021 to build the energy system of the future and to ensure that the energy supply remains safe and reliable.

We are carrying out more work year after year. However, this is still not enough. The Executive Board explains the challenges Enexis Groep is facing and what we are doing to connect renewable projects to the grid as fast as possible.

Sustainable impact

In 2021 aswell, customers en masse opted for generating renewable energy and feeding it back into the grid. An increase of more than 25% in one year. We are breaking ground and building the infrastructure to make this transition possible.

Unfortunately, the capacity in our grids is becoming increasingly scarce. Smart choices have to be made to use the existing grid as efficiently as possible. As we will not be able to solve everything with electricity in the future, Enexis advocates an energy mix with more sustainable molecules. Such as green gas and hydrogen. Green gas can be transported via our existing gas grid. This can thus provide a good contribution to increasing the sustainability of the energy supply in the short term.

SDG Cirkel 2

Creating a better world

With our work, we make a direct contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). For example, by means of renewable wind and solar energy generation onshore and by connecting charging points for electric mobility.

We establish our contribution to the SDGs more and more accurately. Because when we understand our impact, we are better able to improve our impact.

Topics in our annual report

In our annual report, we take you on a tour of the most important developments in 2021. This illustrates how we fulfil our role in society as a regional grid operator. What did we do to help customers, what dilemmas did we face, and which choices have we made?

It is our ambition to make our annual report more and more relevant. This is why we place the emphasis on topics that are relevant for stakeholders.

  • Reliable and accessible energy supply
  • Safe energy grid
  • Sustainable energy supply
  • Affordable energy supply
  • Customer-oriented services
  • Effective market facilitation
  • Safe and healthy working environment
  • Employment and skilled employees
  • Efficient business operations
  • Influencing policy
  • Information security
  • Sustainable organization
  • Financially sound

 

Focus on 2022

Facilitating the energy transition demands our full attention. Everything must be aimed at ensuring that the energy supply remains safe and reliable, that we connect customers on time, and that we realise the energy system of the future. We are working on a historical transition that will have a lasting impact for generations to come

To be able to take on the challenges of the future, we worked on defining a new strategy for Enexis Group in 2021, which we will present in April 2022. We are future-oriented, reliable and we are transparant in our work.
