Svenska Kraftnät is an electricity and natural gas transmission system operator in Sweden. It is a state-owned public utility, which was created in 1992 by splitting the former government agency Vattenfall into a power generation company (Vattenfall AB) and a transmission company. The company has its headquarters in Sundbyberg, near Stockholm in Sweden.

Svenska Kraftnät owns 20% of Nord Pool Spot along with other Nordic transmission system operators.

Svenska Kraftnät is the issuer of the national Guarantees of Origin mandated by the government.
