The UK plays a key role in RWE’s strategy to grow its renewables portfolio and become carbon neutral by 2040.
RWE is the largest power producer in the UK, accounting for around 15% of all electricity generated in the UK, with a diverse operational portfolio of onshore wind, offshore wind, hydro, biomass and gas, amounting to over 10 GW pro rata, (12 GW installed capacity) - enough to power over 10 million UK homes.
RWE is the one of the largest renewables generators in the UK with a diverse operational portfolio of renewables including onshore wind, offshore wind, hydro and biomass with a combined installed capacity of over 2.79 GW (pro rata) (4.8 GW installed capacity.)
In addition to its growing renewables portfolio, RWE operates around 7GW of modern and efficient gas-fired capacity in the UK, making us one of the largest providers of firm flexible generation, which is crucial for security of supply.
In the UK, RWE directly employs around 2,600 people.
Overall, and including its committed investments in projects already under construction, RWE hopes to invest up to £15 billion in new green technologies and infrastructure in the UK by 2030.
