An overview of the company

Driver of the energy transition and Europe's No. 2 in the gas sector

RWE Generation SE is responsible for power generation based on gas, hard coal, hydropower and biomass within the RWE Group. Our approximately 3,000 employees operate power plants in Germany, the UK, the Netherlands and Turkey.

With our flexible, efficient power plant fleet, we are bridging the gap to the new age of renewables. RWE Generation is the number two company in the European gas sector. This is an excellent starting point – since gas is becoming more and more important as the bridge between the old energy world and the new age of renewables. In the Netherlands in particular, the company is focusing on biomass by converting two hard-coal power plants to this carbon-neutral energy source. RWE is also represented in many core markets with hydropower plants.

By converting our power plants and successfully developing new storage technologies, RWE Generation is making a key contribution to the ambitious goal of RWE as a whole – to be carbon-neutral by 2040.
