Eneco

https://www.eneco.nl/

Wouldn’t it be great if we could all generate our own sustainable energy? Good thing is, it's no longer a vision of the future. It's actually happening right now! And more and more people are joining in. They're deciding how they generate, use, sell and share energy with others. Together with our customers and partners we're looking for energy solutions that make it possible to live and work in a smarter way.

Working at Eneco means working at a leading company in sustainability, with a strong focus on innovation and entrepreneurship. We're pioneers in a changing energy market. With the promise ‘Welcome to the new world’, Eneco is making tomorrow’s technology available to everyone today. In addition to the Netherlands, Eneco is also active in Belgium, Germany, France and the United Kingdom.

Nuon

https://www.nuon.com/

Nuon is part of Vattenfall. We are one of the European market leaders in the generation of renewable energy and are primarily active in Scandinavia, Germany and the Netherlands. For us, innovation has no limits. Together we discover renewable energy solutions. That is why we work with people who inspire and challenge us to get the best out of ourselves. We are a dynamic company with an international focus and a social face at the heart of society. A company with enthusiastic teams that deliver tailor-made services to our customers.
At Nuon, we do things differently. We change and evolve too, but we don't believe in short-term answers or quick fixes. We believe in solutions that make a lasting difference and benefit everyone. This is why we give discounts to new customers and longstanding ones alike. It is why we not only supply, but also generate sustainable energy. We don't build wind turbines for individuals. We construct wind farms for the entire country.
Much expertise is required for this, along with the ability to go the extra mile. This is why we listen to what millions of customers tell us, but also enquire further until we understand what it is they truly need.
By getting to the issue behind the question, we take care of improvements that make a difference for everyone and that everyone can benefit from – whether you are a major energy consumer or use very little energy. We listen to you, and always will do.
