Our Presence in China

RWE Group

The importance of energy in our society is immense and the degree of change we witness every day - in supply and demand, energy technology and policy - seems even greater. This applies especially for China, as the country is experiencing a massively expanding energy demand and a corresponding expansion of supply. The key challenge is how to secure a continuous supply of energy, in the face of rapidly expanding demand both from industry and from residential users. In addition, an increased awareness of climate change means that there is a strong push to diversify the country’s energy supply. All energy sources and technologies are expanding.

RWE will leverage +120 years of expertise as one of Europe’s leading owner and operator in the field of conventional energy and as a leading player in the field of renewable energy to help our Chinese Business Partners overcome their energy challenges. New and improved technologies are major contributing factors to finding solutions to the problems at hand. “Innovation”, “Progress” and “Development” through technological improvement in energy infrastructure are focus of our support and solutions for China’s energy sector.

Further, energy efficiency measures are also a key part of the government’s strategy in China, and this is an area where there is a lot of room for change. In this area, RWE shares its own challenge of energy transition to a low-carbon economy:

  • CO2 reduction in conventional generation
  • climate-change mitigation and adaption
  • security of supply
  • the rational use of resources
  • the sustainable reclamation of abandoned mines and industrial areas
