Our current industrial and service-sector society has many lifelines: data networks, mobility, competitive industries and building infrastructure. The one thing these all have in common is the need for electricity – the key energy of our time. The more digitalisation and electrification progresses, the greater the need for secure, 24/7 supply. Our company faces the huge challenge of meeting the burgeoning demand for power while at the same time mitigating against climate change. RWE produces that much-needed electricity – clean and safe. We are investing heavily in the expansion of renewables and storage technologies. With our flexible power plant fleet, we underpin the nation’s security of supply.
The RWE Group is a world leader in renewables with a clear growth focus. RWE keeps its finger firmly on the pulse and is proactively driving change towards the age of renewables. Change is part of the history of RWE. It is also the prerequisite to future-proofing our company. RWE leverages innovation and investment as the basis for a carbon-neutral future.
