RWE Renewables Americas ranks among the top 10 onshore wind companies in the U.S. and the number of projects in the U.S. is growing. The US market is a strong focus of ours and our strategy for renewables is geared to growth: RWE will invest an annual amount of $1.66 billion annually to expand its wind, solar energy and storage technologies portfolio.
RWE is one of the leading international providers of renewable energy. The company owns more than 9 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity with another 2.6 GW under development. RWE thus ranks as the number 4 global renewables player and is number 2 in offshore wind capacity.
RWE committed itself to an ambitious CO2 reduction goal: Currently, around 60 percent of RWE’s electricity generation capacities are free from or low in carbon. This share will increase every year – until RWE is carbon-neutral in 2040.
We develop, own, and operate some of the most efficient, highest performing renewable energy projects in the United States. Already active in onshore wind and photovoltaic renewable generation, E.ON Climate and Renewables as RWE Renewables’ predecessor has added energy storage to its portfolio and has developed and constructed more than 3,800 megawatts of renewable capacity in the United States since 2007. As part of RWE Renewables, our goal is to deliver renewable energy from technologies that address the growing concern about energy security, energy affordability, and climate change.
The company also builds and develops large-scale photovoltaic plants in Canada.
