Vattenfall

Brief description:

Vattenfall is one of Europe's largest generators and distributors of electricity and heat. The group also supplies gas and is involved in energy trading and lignite mining. Its core markets are in Sweden, Germany and the Netherlands but it recently also had operations in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Poland, France and the UK. The parent company is wholly owned by the Swedish state, and has around 34,700 employees.

Vattenfall owns two nuclear power plants in Germany and two in Sweden as well as a number of coal-fired power stations, including Jänschwalde and Schwarze Pumpe. As of 2008, 46% of Vattenfall's production was from fossil energy, 28% from nuclear energy, and 24% from hydroelectric energy.

In April 2014 Vattenfall signed an agreement with the Canadian company SaskPower on sharing CCS knowledge and technology. A month later, in May 2014, Vattenfall decided to cancel all R&D of CCS due to rougher economic conditions and the need to prioritize R&D projects.
