Växjö Energi AB delivers heating, electricity and broadband in a smart and resource-efficient way by making use of waste from the forest and producing renewable energy.

Sweden’s first municipal power station for street lighting and general distribution was opened in Växjö in 1887 – only five years after the first two power stations in the world had been brought into operation, one in London, the other in New York.

Just over 90 years later, in 1980, we were once again the first in the country when we converted an oil-fired district heating plant to burn biofuels with great results. Nobody had carried out such a conversion before to produce district heating.

Three years later, in 1983, we were at it again as we brought the first biofuel combined heat and power plant online. Thanks to our large-scale investment in district heating, the air in Växjö has improved considerably and we have come a long way in the battle for environmentally friendly heating.

Our history shows that, since the beginning in 1887, we have succeeded with much more than many thought possible and we are continuing to develop all the time – for the benefit of customers and society alike.
