About REN


Mission and Values


We work to ensure an uninterrupted supply of electricity and natural gas at the lowest cost.

To ensure an uninterrupted supply of electricity and natural gas at the lowest cost with quality and safety - this is the mission of REN - Redes Energéticas Nacionais.

Quality, one of the basic values of our work, is reflected in our 99.9% efficiency in electricity and 100% in natural gas. In 2011, the supply of natural gas from REN - Redes Energéticas Nacionais did not miss a single second and it only interrupted service in the electricity grid for 16.2 seconds.

We work to maintain a balance between those who require and those who supply energy and guarantee that those involved in the energy market, generators, distributors, suppliers and consumers have equal access to infrastructures.

REN - Redes Energéticas Nacionais works to create value for shareholders while contributing to the sustainable development of the communities we interact with. We have planted more than 420,000 trees over an area of 600 hectares. In 2013,  we have set up 97 platforms for stork nests and 649 bird anti-collision devices. Our constructions sites are established with a minimum impact for local communities. We invest strongly in research and development and in the training of the people who work with us.

We believe in management based on sustainable development. In 2011, two well-known independent agencies recognised this work and classified REN as one of the benchmark companies in the energy world.
