We don’t seek to maximise profitability in any one year but to maintain and develop a sustainable business that serves customers, employs people and pays dividends over the long term.
In December 1998 we were formed with the merger of Scottish Hydro Electric and Southern Electric.
We provide services from street lighting maintenance to gas storage and telecoms networks, all designed to help customers from large local authorities to householders meet their energy and utility needs.
SSE has the greatest diversity in fuels for generating electricity among UK generators.

SSE's team of 20,000 employees is led by the main Board of Directors and by a management Board created to deliver the strategy and decisions agreed by main Board and to lead operational management of our businesses.
The Board The Board is accountable to its shareholders for the good conduct of SSE's business. Our Board is made up of the Chairman, independent non-Executive Directors and Executive Directors. It is specifically responsible for things like approving the company's strategy, budget, major investments and overall governance.
