History[edit]

Trondheim Energi was founded in 1901 as Trondhjems Elektricitetsværk og Sporvei to build a power plant in Øvre Leirfoss and operate the Trondheim Tramway. In 1921 the company was split into Trondheim Energiverk (TEV) and Trondheim Sporvei, the latter with responsibility for the tramway. In 1952 TEV and Stockholm Elverk made an agreement where they would cooperate in building the Nea power plant. The agreement included exchange of power with Sweden. In 1982 the district heating system was decided built by the city council, with operation starting in 1986. In 1997 the company was reorganized as a limited company and in 1999 as a corporation. In 2002 Trondheim city council sold the company to Statkraft. In 2007 the group changed its name to Trondheim Energi.
