RWE is leading the way to a green energy world.

With our comprehensive investment and growth strategy ‘Growing Green’, we are expanding our powerful and green generation capacity. By 2030, it will have an international capacity of 50 gigawatts. To this end, RWE is investing €50 billion gross in this decade.

Our portfolio is based on offshore and onshore wind, solar, hydropower, hydrogen, batteries, biomass and gas. Our Supply & Trading business creates customised energy solutions for large customers. RWE has locations in the attractive markets of Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific region.

We are rigorously and responsibly phasing out nuclear energy and coal. Government-mandated exit roadmaps have been defined for both energy sources. We reduced our CO2 emissions by over 60 % between 2012 and 2020.

RWE will be climate-neutral by 2040.

On the way to achieving this, we have set ourselves ambitious targets for all activities that cause greenhouse gas emissions. The targets have been confirmed by the Science Based Targets Initiative and are in line with the Paris Climate Agreement.

All of this is in line with our purpose: Our energy for a sustainable life.

Our strategy at a glance

By 2030, we want to be one of the world's largest producers of electricity from renewable energies and will be investing 50 billion euros in offshore and onshore wind power, solar, batteries, flexible generation and hydrogen. We are expanding our own capacity in these areas to 50 gigawatts.

Our goal: to be climate-neutral by 2040.

We are already active in 30 hydrogen projects.

Hydrogen is an integral part of our green growth strategy. By the end of the decade, we want to build up 2 gigawatts of our own electrolysis capacity.

We are already active in 30 hydrogen projects.

We will put all our energy into making a sustainable life possible.

Therefore, we have defined the purpose of the new RWE as:

“Our energy for a sustainable life”.


Our ambition

We will be carbon neutral by 2040, with clean, secure and affordable energy.

Our mission

From this goal we have derived our mission. It will guide all our future decisions at RWE.

  • We are investing massively in expanding renewables and are involved in innovative hydrogen projects. We are consistently reducing our carbon emissions until we become carbon neutral by 2040.
