- Who we are
We Are Realising the Green Transition
Our market-leading products optimise energy production, trading, distribution and consumption, as well as infrastructure and construction projects. Our mission is to realise a cleaner and more profitable future for our 2,200+ customers and thus the global society
Volue operates in three main fields: energy, power grid, and infrastructure. Through analysis, planning operations, asset management to monetisation, we create value out of volatility.
We empower the green transition and increase revenues for our customers – from utilities, to large end consumers, grid operators to builders of infrastructure. We also design and develop cutting-edge technology for municipalities, water, defence, transport, maritime, and offshore.
Sustainable development is vital for all our future. That development comes with challenges that require stability. We believe great people, delivering end-to-end platforms and technology services, hold the key to unlock a better and more prosperous future.
Volue has a growing customer base all over Europe, and beyond. Among our international energy customers are eight of the ten largest European utilities, including EnBW, Enel, E.ON, Fortum, Innogy, RWE, Uniper, and Vattenfall. We also serve most of the nordic grid operators and have a strong position among Norwegian municipalities, construction and Infrastructure developers.
As a company, we might be a new player, but we know the game better than most. Founded by some of the most experienced and innovative technology companies in the industry, Volue’s DNA has been the transition to sustainable and digital services before it has seen the light of the world. Agile as a start-up, experienced enough to claim a leading position from the get-go.
Volue is about people. From staff to client, people are at the centre of all our operations, and we always strive for a flat structure where everyone feels included, appreciated and recognised for their individual efforts. Or as we call it; “ONE Volue”. We hire talented and hardworking individuals, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, ancestry, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, cultural background or religious beliefs.
