RWE is one of Europe’s five leading electricity and gas companies. Through our expertise in oil, gas and lignite production, in electricity generation from gas, coal, nuclear and renewables, and in energy trading as well as electricity and gas distribution and supply, we are active at all stages of the energy value chain. Around 66,000 employees supply over 16 million electricity customers and more than seven million gas customers with energy, both reliably and at fair prices. In fiscal 2013, we recorded approximately €54 billion in revenue.

Europe is our market: in terms of sales, we are No. 3 in electricity and No. 5 in gas. In Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, we are among the largest suppliers of both fuels. In the Czech Republic, we are No. 1 in the gas business. We also have leading positions in other markets in Central Eastern Europe.

The European energy sector is undergoing fundamental changes. Political intervention is making our business challenging. In addition, the subsidised expansion of renewables in Germany is causing the margins and utilisation of conventional power stations to decline. All of this is having a significant effect on our earnings. To succeed in this environment, we launched the ‘RWE 2015’ programme. It includes comprehensive measures to reduce costs and increase revenue. We are also adjusting our organisational structure to cope with the challenges. By decreasing investment and reducing debt, we want to improve our financial flexibility.

Despite difficult framework conditions, we want to play our part in the continued development of the European energy system, proving that we are trustworthy and high performing. Our strategy is to invest in renewable energy and a modern network infrastructure. In addition, we take advantage of opportunities in the market which arise due to new customer demands by offering a wide range of innovative energy products and services.

RWE confirms outlook for 2014

Persistently low prices on the wholesale electricity market and the unusually mild weather continue to affect RWE AG’s business performance in 2014. In the first three quarters, the operating result fell as expected to EUR2.9 billion, a drop of 31% year on year. EBITDA was down 22% to EUR4.7 billion, and recurrent net income – the basis for determining the dividend – fell 60% to EUR763 million. However, the severity of these decreases is partly attributable to a high one-off payment awarded to RWE during the previous year as a result of a proceeding to renegotiate prices for its gas purchasing agreements, and partly to the fact that recurrent net income no longer includes the result from RWE Dea as it is in the process of being sold. Group revenue fell 9% to EUR35.3 billion.

Green light for second construction phase at the Königshovener Höhe wind farm

Königshovener Höhe Wind Farm

Today, the second phase of construction commences at the Königshovener Höhe wind farm. RWE and the town of Bedburg are jointly building a wind farm with an overall capacity of 67 megawatts (MW) on reclaimed land that was previously the Garzweiler open cast mine site. The city has a 49 percent interest in the jointly developed wind farm. The first twelve wind turbines should be completed by the end of this year, while the nine turbines that comprise the second phase of construction are slated to be fully commissioned by the end of 2015. Wind turbines from German manufacturer Senvion, with an output of 3.2MW each, have been selected for installation. Overall investment in the project amounts to some 110 million euro.
