Vattenfall was founded in 1909 and on this site you can see, read and immerse yourself in the momentous events that have shaped the company until today.
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 revolutionsidé 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, several acquired companies were older than Vattenfall. Under the theme of “A pan-European company”, you will get glimpses into the histories of those companies too.
In the spring of 2019, the website has been updated with a number of articles on the "contemporary history" from the turn of the millennium onwards - check the timeline!
