We represent a secure, reliable energy supply.
With its four subsidiaries RWE Renewables, RWE Generation, RWE Power and RWE Supply & Trading and a portfolio of around 46 gigawatts of generation capacity, the new RWE will supply clean, reliable and affordable electricity in the future. Following the completion of the transaction with E.ON, RWE's generation capacity from renewables will be more than nine gigawatts. The company intends to further expand this position by investing up to net €1.5 billion annually in onshore and offshore wind power, photovoltaics and storage.
In addition, RWE generates electricity from hard coal, lignite, nuclear power, gas, hydropower and biomass. RWE Supply & Trading is the interface between RWE and the energy markets around the world. In order to push ahead with the energy transition, RWE is investing in innovative projects such as heat storage power plants, the generation and use of hydrogen as an energy source and Power-to-X processes. The group employs around 20,000 people worldwide and is headquartered in Essen, Germany.
RWE Power is a reliable cornerstone of a modern electricity supply. The company operates three opencast mines in the Rhineland. With their secure and flexible capacity, its coal-fired and nuclear power plants contribute to maintaining security of supply in the European power system while an ever greater proportion of energy is generated from renewable sources.
Within the RWE Group, RWE Generation SE, based in Essen, Germany, generates power from gas, hard coal, hydroelectric, and biomass. Under one umbrella, this company brings together the expertise of employees in Germany, the UK, the Netherlands and Turkey. Together, we operate power plants with a total capacity of around 25 gigawatts. With their secure and flexible output, the plants contribute towards ensuring secure and reliable supply in the European power grid as the share of naturally volatile renewable energy increases.
With our gas, hard-coal, hydroelectric and biomass power plants, we work towards ensuring that power is generated in an even more environmentally friendly manner in the future, and that affordable electricity is reliably supplied to sockets everywhere. The company is proud to work on this task that is so crucial for the future.
