Who we are
An overview of the company
Driver of the energy transition and number four in the European gas sector
RWE Generation SE is responsible for electricity generation from gas, hard coal, hydropower and biomass within the RWE Group. With approximately 3,100 employees in Germany, the UK, the Netherlands and Turkey, we operate power plants with a total capacity of around 25 gigawatts.
Our flexible, efficient power plant fleet builds the bridge towards the age of renewables. RWE Generation’s gas fleet ranks fourth in Europe. An excellent starting position, since gas is playing an increasingly important role as a bridge into the age of renewables. One of the energy sources used by the company is biomass, in particular in the Netherlands where two hard-coal-fired power plants are being converted to using the carbon-neutral fuel. RWE Generation also operates hydro-electric power plants in many core markets.
By converting power plants and through successfully developing storage technologies, RWE Generation is making a crucial contribution towards the ambitious goal of RWE as a whole: to become carbon neutral by 2040.
