The path towards carbon neutrality is irreversible. In particular, the past five years have been decisive, with the adoption of The Sustainable Development Goals, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement. 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; we are now one of the world’s leading renewable energy producers, and are #2 globally in offshore wind.
Since 2012, RWE has reduced emissions by more than 50%, and expects to achieve 75% by 2030. There’s still a long-way to go but the direction of travel is clear, and RWE has set the ambitious target of becoming carbon neutral by 2040.
By the end of 2022, we aim to expand our renewables portfolio to more than 13 gigawatts capacity by investing €5 billion net. Here you will find the projects under development in the UK.
