Who we are
An overview of the company
Innovation and sustainability champion in the field of renewables
Our generation of electricity from renewable energy sources is pooled within RWE Renewables, where RWE has risen to become the key player in this field. In the future-proof offshore wind sector and in the solar business, we are one of the largest electricity generators worldwide.
And we have one goal – to be carbon-neutral by 2040. So we are reducing our carbon emissions as quickly and substantially as possible, by systematically cutting back or converting our conventional power plants. From 2012 to the end of 2020, we already reduced our CO2 emissions by over 60%. No other company in Germany has achieved more in recent years, and we fully intend to maintain this momentum.
Our employees work together to advance new, innovative technologies, delivering a range of exciting projects. With the extensive investment and growth strategy “Growing Green” the company will expand its powerful, green generation capacity to 50 gigawatts internationally by 2030. RWE is investing €50 billion gross for this purpose in this decade.
The Americas, our European core markets and new markets in the Asia Pacific region are the main focus. The project pipeline is full across all technologies, including offshore and onshore wind as well as photovoltaic systems. In Sweden we are currently building the largest onshore wind farm in Europe and in Australia we are working on the nation’s largest solar power plant.
Due to the company’s increasing activities in the areas of onshore and offshore wind as well as solar energy, RWE Renewables GmbH comprises the two functional units “Unit Renewables Europe & Australia” and “Unit Offshore Wind”. Renewables Europe & Australia unit focuses on the expansion of onshore wind and solar energy / PV on the continents of Europe and Australia, while the Offshore Wind unit is responsible for the international expansion of offshore wind farms.
