RWE Renewables produces electricity from renewable energy sources. The company is a global player from Germany: number two worldwide in offshore wind power.
RWE has been producing electricity with passion for over 120 years. Now RWE is shaping the new energy era. Following its realignment, RWE is now one of the world's leading renewable energy companies. RWE is international, future-oriented and broadly positioned. Ideal conditions for clean, reliable and affordable electricity.
RWE Renewables, the new subsidiary of the RWE group, has been one of the world's leading players since its launch – for example, it is the global number two in offshore wind power. The company has onshore and offshore wind farms, photovoltaic plants and battery storage facilities with a combined capacity of approximately 9 gigawatts. RWE Renewables is driving the expansion of renewable energy in more than 15 countries on four continents. By the end of 2022, RWE Renewables aims to invest €5 billion net in renewable energy and to grow its renewables portfolio to 13 gigawatts of net capacity.
Current projects range from the completion of an 857 MW offshore wind farm in the UK to the commissioning of RWE's 25th wind farm in North America, which supplies green electricity for 66,000 households. In Sweden, RWE Renewables is building the largest European onshore wind farm. In Germany, construction is beginning on the Kaskasi offshore wind farm north of Heligoland, which will be able to generate electricity for 400,000 households and for which contracts worth around €500 million have been awarded.
The RWE Renewables portfolio ranges from plant development and construction to operation and repowering.
As a driver of the energy transition, the RWE group is also focusing on innovative projects such as floating offshore and the production and use of hydrogen.
And RWE has a clear goal: to be carbon-neutral by 2040.
