Who we are
Energy and commodity trading for Group customers worldwide
RWE Supply & Trading is the interface between RWE and energy markets around the world. A total of 1,700 employees from over 50 different countries are engaged in the trade of (renewable) electricity, (green) gas, commodities and carbon emission certificates. We are active not only in Essen, which is home to one of the world’s largest trading floors, but also in major cities like London and New York and in key growth markets – particularly in Asia, where we are represented in Singapore and China.
With precise market analysis and a strong customer focus, we create innovative energy supply solutions and risk management concepts for industrial companies.
Now that all of our renewable activities are integrated within RWE, RWE Supply & Trading can increasingly offer customised products and services from a single source, such as a combination of renewables plus control energy or conventional electricity. We are also able to draw on our considerable experience in the marketing of electricity from renewables. Deutsche Bahn (German Rail), for instance, is one of the key accounts choosing to purchase “green” power from RWE Supply & Trading.
In order to optimise our conventional RWE power plants, we work in close collaboration with the operating units of our generating companies RWE Power and RWE Generation. We are also proactive in the promising gas and LNG (liquefied natural gas) markets.
