We have been active in the energy sector for over 100 years. Eneco's roots go back to the 19th century. At that time, gas and electricity were produced on a 'large' scale for the first time and local energy companies were established. These local energy companies grew larger and merged in the 20th century. After a history of cooperation and mergers between the municipal utility companies of Rotterdam, The Hague and Dordrecht, the current Eneco was created in 1995. In 2021 Eneco will be a strong, integrated, independent and growing energy company, active in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the United Kingdom. Eneco's head office is located in Rotterdam.
Since 1 January 2018, all parts of Royal Schiphol Group have run entirely on Eneco sustainable electricity generated in the Netherlands. Eneco works together with the crowdfunding platform Ecco Nova. On the platform, companies and consumers can invest in sustainable projects through crowdlending and bonds.
Eneco enters into a ten-year agreement with the Belgian plastic manufacturer Borealis to help reduce their CO2 footprint. By 2021, the Borealis branches will be powered by wind energy from the SeaMade wind farm in the North Sea. CrossWind, a joint venture between Eneco and Shell, will build the Hollandse Kust (North) offshore wind farm; one of the first offshore wind farms in the world not to receive any subsidies.
