RWE is one of the biggest energy suppliers in Europe – and with the launch of RWE Renewables it is also the leading force worldwide in renewables. Our mines and power plants, where we turn lignite and coal, gas, uranium, water and biomass into electricity, shape their local regions – in Germany, the Netherlands and the UK. They guarantee affordable security of supply in their respective countries – and also within the European grid system. In addition, we operate wind farms and solar plants with several gigawatts of capacity beyond the borders of Europe, in particular in North America.
RWE is a strong partner on the path to a renewable future. The company covers the entire spectrum of secure and clean power generation – with flexible conventional power plants as well as with wind farms, solar and hydropower plants. RWE Supply & Trading, RWE’s international trading house, is the hub and connector between these worlds. It specialises in energy trading, providing solutions for industrial customers, optimising power plant deployment and selling gas storage capacity. The storage units are a key component in securing the supply of natural gas.
24 hours a day, seven days a week, the experts from RWE Supply & Trading buy and sell electricity, gas, commodities and CO2 allowances. The company operates not only in Essen on one of the largest commodities trading floors in Europe; it is also active in London, Prague and New York, as well as on emerging markets, in particular in Asia – with representatives in Singapore and China.
