Reliability of supply
Input and correlations relevant to issue
Uninterrupted availability of energy through grids and installations that are keenly attuned to the needs of our customers and society as a whole.
Continuous supply of energy is of great social importance. Interruptions have a direct impact on the interests of our stakeholders. Customers demand immediate information about interruptions, as well as an indication of the estimated outage time.
Our long-term objective
Our objective is a high reliability of supply. Our target for repeat outages is that the number of unique cable numbers with more than five interruptions remains a maximum of 17 in the coming years.
Contribution from Alliander
We work daily to secure a continuous energy supply, both now and in preparation for the future. We invested €890 million in our networks to increase their reliability. Our outage duration was 23.2 minutes in 2020. The score for repeat outages was 17.
Relationship with Alliander impact model: manufactured capital
The prosperity value of energy transmission for society is high and makes a strong contribution to the well-being of customers. Interruptions in the availability of energy lead to a relatively strong impairment of customer well-being.
