About us

Stedin Group in the energy supply chain

With our gas and electricity grids, we are a vital link for economic activities in our coverage area. We collaborate with other players in the energy supply chain. These include electricity and gas producers, the national distributors of electricity and gas TenneT and Gasunie, our suppliers, the other regional grid managers and the organisations that monitor the reliability, affordability, safety and sustainability of our energy supply. Stedin Group is a semi-public organisation: a public limited company whose shares are owned by government authorities, namely 42 municipalities and the Dutch State.

Our service area

We manage and maintain the energy grids in most of South-Holland, Utrecht and Zeeland. Our service area is home to roughly 5.5 million people and includes three of the four largest cities in the Netherlands, the port and industrial areas of Rotterdam and Zeeland, as well as greenhouse horticulture regions. Parts of the provinces of North-Holland and Friesland also fall within our coverage area. Stedin Group operates and has its registered office in the Netherlands. Our head office is located at Blaak 8, 3011 TA in Rotterdam.

Our activities

Stedin Group focuses on all activities relating to constructing, managing and maintaining energy grids. In addition, Stedin Group facilitates the energy market. Stedin Group consists of several business units: grid manager Stedin operates in the regulated market, while our infra partners NetVerder and DNWG carry out non-regulated activities. Stedin Netbeheer, NetVerder and DNWG are separate subsidiaries of Stedin Holding. In 2023, the non-regulated activities accounted for 1.6% of revenue (2022: 2.6%).

How we are organised

Stedin Netbeheer

As a grid manager, Stedin Netbeheer ensures a safe, reliable and affordable energy supply for its more than 2.3 million customers. Stedin Netbeheer operates alongside five other regional grid managers in the regulated market. At year-end 2023, Stedin Netbeheer had 5,471 employees, including 4,465 internal staff members (male: 3,607; female: 858) and 1,006 external staff members (male: 795; female: 211).


NetVerder helps achieve the energy transition by developing, constructing and maintaining energy infrastructures for heat, steam and biogas. NetVerder also focuses on the independent transmission and distribution of other new energy sources or carriers. NetVerder is an independent part of Stedin Group. NetVerder has 18 staff members, including 12 internal staff members (male: 9; female: 3) and 6 external staff members (male: 6; female: 0).

DNWG Infra

DNWG Infra (operating under the name DNWG) maintains and manages Stedin Netbeheer’s electricity and gas grids and the Evides water grid in Zeeland and Goeree. In 2023, it was decided to discontinue the water-related outage and maintenance activities carried out in partnership with Evides. 2024 will be a transition year, so that Evides will be able to perform these activities entirely independently. At year-end 2023, DNWG Infra has 348 staff members, including 307 internal staff members (male: 255; female: 52) and 41 external staff members (male: 36; female: 5).

Joint arrangements

We form joint arrangements with other parties for specific activities.

Utility Connect

Utility Connect B.V. is a joint arrangement with network group Alliander. Utility Connect operates its own wireless telecommunications network, which it uses to read metering data provided by smart meters and to communicate with smart-grid applications. This network allows us to supply metering data to market parties and shorten or prevent energy supply disruptions.


TensZ B.V. is the joint organisation of TenneT and Stedin for managing and maintaining high-voltage grids. Each party holds a 50% share.

Stichting Zeeuwse Publieke Belangen (Zeeland Public Interest Foundation)

Stichting Zeeuwse Publieke Belangen is an alliance between the province of Zeeland, the municipalities of Zeeland and Stedin Group. Established in 2017, the purpose of the foundation is to safeguard the agreements concerning the sale of DNWG to Stedin Group in areas including employment, energy supply and the energy transition. The foundation makes a budget available to promote the energy transition in Zeeland. An overview of the initiatives can be found on the foundation’s website.
