Transparency campaign

RWE Image

Energy mix in real time, current load, individual unit output: when you look at the ins and outs of daily electricity production, it is not as indicative as looking at the bare figures. To make reliable information on electricity generation of the Group accessible to the general public, RWE has been on the transparency offensive since 2007 to make this available digitally and free of charge for every user – on its own initiative.
