For us, origination means tailor-made products and services.

To enable you to operate optimally with your generation or energy consumption, more than a standard product is often required. Vattenfall develops customized energy solutions and products that focus on your individual procurement, portfolio, trading and generation strategy. Green power solutions are primarily used in this context.

Read on or contact us directly if you want to know more about our tailored energy solutions.

Optimization of the use of generation plants

We take care of mixed portfolios as well as the short-, medium- and long-term optimization of your generation plants.

Green Corporate PPAs

Would you like to source your electricity needs directly from renewables? We connect you via Green Corporate PPAs with investors who want to get into new wind farm and solar park projects without subsidies, or we physically supply from our Renewable portfolio.
