A group with a mission
Andel is the largest energy and distribution company in Denmark. We are also a cooperative society and a group with subsidiaries. But size is only important when it comes to what we can achieve when we are strong, together.
The purpose of Andel is to create value for our customers and cooperative owners. We create welfare and growth regionally and in society in general by providing vital infrastructure and future-proof energy solutions. We create energy to live life.
Andel goes to the market in the group’s own name and through its subsidiaries operating in different segments within the energy sector – including Cerius and Radius Elnet, Clever, Energi Danmark, Fibia and SEAS-NVE. Andel is owned by approximately 400,000 cooperative members on Zealand and has 2.8 million customer relationships across Denmark. Andel employs approximately 1,700 colleagues and has its head office in Svinninge and primary locations in Ballerup, Haslev and Virum.
Andel’s vision and mission
Our vision is based on our belief in the community and our determination to be each other’s best connection. That means that in everyday life, we wish to be closely connected with our members and customers, our business partners and our colleagues. As the best connection, our most important task is to create value, and we do this through a strong position in the market, a high level of quality, a large contribution to society and solid earnings.
Our mission is to create energy to live life in school, on the job, in leisure life and at home. As a cooperative society, it is in our DNA that we must create value for our customers and the society around us. And that we do so in a responsible way. Andel is an energy and fibre-optic group with ambitions and with a heart for this task.

Andel creates energy for you – from production to sale
Production of wind energy
Through the offshore windfarm Rødsand 2, Andel contributes with the production of wind energy, and the windfarm produces energy corresponding to the annual electricity consumption of 200,000 households. Through an equity interest of 5.01% in Ørsted, Andel is involved in the development of sustainable energy solutions and production across most of the world.
Distribution of energy
Together, the grid companies Cerius and Radius supply electricity to more than 1.4 million grid customers. That corresponds to approximately 40% of the total supply of electricity in Denmark. The targets for both electricity grid companies are efficient operations and security of supply through continuous extension of the electricity grid, so that it can accommodate increased decentral production and consumption of climate-friendly electricity. The grid company Cerius operates and develops the electricity grid in South, West and Central Zealand, Lolland-Falster and the isles in the area. The grid company Radius operates and develops the electricity grid in the Copenhagen area, North Zealand and parts of Central Zealand.
Andel is lifting South, West and Central Zealand, Lolland-Falster and the isles out of the digital inequality with an investment of DKK 3.4 billion through its subsidiary Fibia. All cooperative members are offered access to 1 Gb/s high-speed internet before the end of 2023. The co-ownership in Fibia offers Andel the opportunity to meet the members’ needs for future-proof and fast internet, to be part of lifting a task for society and to strengthen an attractive business area.
Energy sale and customer solutions
Through SEAS-NVE Strømmen, SEAS-NVE Energi and a part ownership of 40.5% in Energi Danmark, Andel offers the sale of electricity as well as natural gas and biogas to residential and corporate customers. The target is to be the customers’ first choice within integrated, digital and future-proof customer solutions.
Andel believes that electric cars are the future, and consequently we have invested, together with the energy company NRGI, in the electric mobility operator Clever, which is the leading provider of private and public charging solutions for electric cars in the Nordic countries. As the largest provider of e-mobility in the Nordic countries, Clever is an important strategic operator in the transition of transportation.
Most recent annual report
2019 was a historic year for Andel, in which the group again delivered very satisfactory results and concluded the acquisition of Radius Elnet and Ørsted’s residential customer and exterior lighting business. A decisive transaction which secures a strong foundation for the Andel group of the future.
