TenneT supplies the electricity for all appliances and systems that consume electricity in your home, at your sports club, in all public areas and more. The Netherlands and a large part of Germany rely on TenneT's services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. With over 23,500 kilometres of high-voltage connections on land and at sea and some 5,000 employees, TenneT is one of Europe's largest electricity transmission companies with no less than 41 million end users in the Netherlands and Germany. Without TenneT you wouldn't be able to use your computer, keep your food fresh in the fridge, charge your phone, watch TV, PIN or even turn on the light. Moreover, no cars, clothing or equipment could be produced, because factories obviously need electricity. Without electricity we would struggle to survive in our 24-hour society. Fortunately, TenneT is doing everything it can to keep the lights on. The availability of their grid is as high as 99.99%. This makes TenneT one of the best grid operators in the world.
