We pursue our commitment to protecting the climate and lowering our specific CO2 emissions with great consistency and expertise. Thanks to high levels of investment, we are able to continually upgrade our portfolio with modern, highly efficient power plants, thus also reducing our specific CO2 emissions from our conventional power plant portfolio both in absolute terms and relative to the amount of electricity generated.
The power plants are operated flexibly in order to make up for the fluctuations in feed-in from renewable energy sources – and this is essential to ensuring the success of the energy transition. With a clear plan to reduce CO2 emissions that is fully in line with the European climate protection targets, RWE makes an active contribution to protecting the climate. There is probably no other sector that reduces its CO2 emissions in such a consistent and targeted way.
