RWE uses sunlight, onshore and offshore wind, water, and biomass from wood residues to generate energy that has no carbon footprint and thus forms the basis for a green future.
Globally, RWE is one of the largest providers of energy from renewables, and plays a key part in the energy transition. The company is forging ahead with the expansion of renewables in more than 20 countries on five continents, which takes it closer to a major objective: to be climate-neutral by 2040. Germany offers particular potential for growth in this regard. After all, Germany is the only industrialised nation where both coal and nuclear energy have to be replaced in the very short term. RWE will therefore also ramp up the pace at a national level, investing between €10 and €15 billion (gross) during the 2020s in the local expansion of offshore and onshore wind power, solar, storage systems, flexible back-up capacities and hydrogen. The company expects to invest a total of more than €50 billion (gross) in the expansion of renewables worldwide by 2030.
