About RWE

RWE Supply & Trading is a leading European energy trading house and a significant entity on the global wholesale markets for energy and energy-related raw materials in both their physical and/or derivative forms. We are part of the RWE Group – a powerful player in the transformation of the European energy system.

We trade in energy and energy-related raw materials including power, gas, coal, freight, oil, weather derivatives, biomass, emissions certificates and renewable energies. We are responsible for the economic optimisation of power generation and the entire non-regulated gas business of the RWE Group, including all procurement, storage and LNG-related activities.

At our headquarters in Essen, Germany, you’ll find the largest and most sophisticated energy trading floor in Europe. We also have trading floors in Singapore, London and Swindon, and operate in Den Bosch, Geneva, Prague, Beijing, Tokyo, New York, Mumbai and Jakarta. We continue to expand into new markets and grow globally. Our highly-skilled team consists of around 1,500 employees from 50 countries.

Our world is changing – and we’re changing with it. Not just for our customers, or our partners: we’re changing to create a future we can all look forward to.

So who are we? We’re the 20,000-plus family who work at RWE. The ones ploughing all our energy, all our passion, into making a greener, more sustainable future closer, day by day.

Electricity is the most important driving factor for innovation and modernisation in our time. The more digitalisation and electrification progress, the larger the demand for a secure electricity supply that is always available.

At the same time, climate change urges us to significantly reduce emissions. Society therefore faces a tremendous task: to meet increasing power demand on the one hand and protect our climate on the other.

The new RWE will play an important role in achieving this. With a clear focus on the technologies of the future: renewables and storage. Supported by a globally active trading company. And with a flexible fleet of conventional power plants in the German, Benelux, and British core markets that helps maintain a reliable power supply.

Our shared guiding principle is clear: “Our energy for a sustainable life” Approximately 20,000 people at RWE are working to this end and they have set themselves an ambitious goal: to achieve carbon neutrality by 2040.
