About this site and contact

Vattenfall's Cultural Heritage Committee initiated the idea of a historic website for Vattenfall. It later became a responsibility for the line organisation. The Centre for Business History in Stockholm was asked by Vattenfall to help building the website, together with Nilsson Mace and Technocreative. Vattenfall has a history going back over 100 years. This is something to be proud of, and offers a lot to learn from. Electricity facilitated what is sometimes called “the second industrial revolution” and electricity also revolutionised everyday life. There are many stories to tell from the company's start right down to today.

When Vattenfall was internationalised and became a European company in the early 2000s, we acquired companies that were older than Vattenfall. Under the theme of “A pan-European company”, you will get glimpses into the histories of those companies too.

Do you have any views, your own stories or other comments? Then please get in touch!
