Projects & Technologies
Modern society needs safe, reliable and affordable energy to work properly and safeguard our standard of living. The challenges are: how to meet our energy demands and at the same time keep climate change in check. We see active climate protection and a reliable energy supply not as opposites, but as essentials. This goes for all parts of the energy supply chain, from the production of raw materials to the generation of electric power, from the transportation of energy to its consumption. RWE uses its tools to fine-tune all these components of an energy supply of the future. Internationally active, RWE is working on many projects for developing new technologies – but also on gradually improving today’s processes and technologies.
We invite you to look at the diversity of our innovation projects.
