- WHAT WE DO
Building a Better World of Energy
SSE is involved in the generation, transmission, distribution and supply of electricity, in the production, storage, distribution and supply of gas and in other energy services. The bulk of SSE’s operating profit comes from regulated electricity networks and renewable sources of energy, and it is these businesses that are at the core of the Group’s low-carbon strategy.
SSE has consolidated the development and operation of all its renewables assets in the Gb and Ireland under a single management in a business known as SSE Renewables.
SSE’s wholly-owned economically-regulated electricity transmission and distribution businesses are collectively known as Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) and it holds a one-third stake in the gas distribution company, SGN.
Flexible thermal generation complements the growth of variable wind and solar, business-to-business in the UK and Ireland, and business-to-customer operations provide a valuable route to market, market-orientated activity like energy trading and gas storage balances risk and SSE Enterprise is creating opportunities in distributed energy and facilitating the electrification of transport.
Creating value for shareholders and society
SSE’s vision is to be a leading energy provider in a low-carbon world. To achieve this we have set four fundamental goals for 2030 which put sustainability at heart of SSE’s business strategy. These goals aren’t just important to SSE, they matter to everyone – that’s why they are directly linked to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
