Alliander operates energy networks which distribute gas and electricity to large parts of the Netherlands. With our work we facilitate businesses, homes, transport and recreation. We want to strengthen and empower society by providing free access to the energy infrastructure and giving our customers more insight into their energy consumption. Alliander is helping to bring an open and sustainable energy market closer. Our most important task is to distribute gas and electricity to consumers, businesses and institutions. The network operators Liander and Endinet make this possible by keeping the energy networks in good condition, taking care of distribution and connecting customers to the energy networks. In response to the rapidly changing energy landscape, we are working hard to build a future-proof and open network that can accommodate multiple energy providers. To obtain insight into society’s energy ambitions at all levels, we consult with provinces, municipalities and other customers. We help them resolve their energy issues and develop complex energy infrastructures.
