The way we generate power is changing fundamentally. Today, power generation is still carbon intensive. We all agree that this has to change. RWE is driving this change. Between 2012 and 2019, the company has already reduced its CO2 emissions by 90 million tons; this is a decrease of 51 percent. And that’s just the beginning. Modern society’s demand for electricity is increasing. RWE will generate that electricity in a way that allows people to combine sustainable living with high energy consumption. To do so, the company will be carbon-neutral by 2040. RWE will achieve that goal by consistently and responsibly withdrawing from fossil energy sources.
And also, as one of the world’s leading providers of renewable energy, RWE will be making huge investments in wind and solar energy as well as in storage technologies: The company plans net investments of approximately €5 billion in Europe, North America and Asia/Pacific, in order to enlarge its existing renewable energy portfolio to over 13 gigawatts. €1 billion of this sum is envisaged for projects in Germany. After all, we want people to continue to take their electricity supply for granted. And to know that this electricity is clean, secure and affordable.
