All about RWE

RWE is one of Europe’s five leading electricity and gas companies. It is active in the generation, trading, transmission and supply of electricity and gas. More than 70,000 employees supply over 16 million customers with electricity and approximately 8 million customers with gas. In fiscal 2009, RWE recorded about €48 billion in revenue.

RWE is the No. 1 power producer in Germany, No. 2 in the Netherlands, and No. 3 in the UK. The market position in Central and South-Eastern Europe is being expanded continuously. Through RWE Dea, the Group is successfully active in the gas and oil production business in Europe, Northern Africa and the Caspian region. RWE Supply & Trading is one of Europe’s leading energy trading companies.

RWE is investing at record levels. Some €7 billion are earmarked annually for investments in environmentally friendly and flexible generation capacity, which includes power plants, grids and open-cast mines. €1 billion of that will go towards renewables – mainly wind and biomass.

RWE reacts to changes in customer needs by offering new electricity, gas and energy efficiency products for homes, commerce and industry. In this context, climate protection and energy efficiency are becoming increasingly important. Another key focus area is electric cars.
