Four companies, one RWE

Our energy for a sustainable life

Electricity is the most important driving factor for innovation and modernisation in our time. The more digitalisation and electrification progress, the larger the demand for a secure electricity supply that is always available. At the same time, climate change urges us to significantly reduce emissions.

Society therefore faces a tremendous task: to meet increasing power demand on the one hand and protect our climate on the other. The new RWE will play an important role in achieving this. With a clear focus on the technologies of the future: renewables and storage. Supported by a globally active trading company. And with a flexible fleet of conventional power plants in the German, Benelux, and British core markets that helps maintain a reliable power supply. In the course of this, our company will responsibly implement the phasing out of nuclear energy and coal. Within the new RWE, the individual companies will perform different tasks (as depicted in the following overview). Our shared guiding principle is clear: “Our energy for a sustainable life”. Approximately 20,000 people at RWE are working to this end and they have set themselves an ambitious goal: to achieve carbon neutrality by 2040.
