The focus of RWE International SE (innogy)’s activities is on offering existing and potential customers innovative and sustainable products and services which enable them to use energy more efficiently and improve their quality of life. The key markets are Germany, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium and several countries in Central Eastern and South Eastern Europe, especially the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland. In renewable power generation, the company is also active in other regions, e.g. Spain and Italy. The new subsidiary of RWE AG was launched on 1 April 2016. On 29 June 2016, the name of the European stock company was announced: innogy. The new name will take formal effect as of 1 September 2016, at which time the company as well as its products and services will be rebranded. Until then, the subsidiary will continue under the name RWE International SE.

The innogy brand name is a symbiosis of the terms innovation, energy and technology.

We plan, build and operate plants to generate power and extract energy from renewable sources. We aim to rapidly expand renewables in Europe, both on our own and with partners. In this way, we can work together to make the energy transition a success.

Currently, we are particularly strongly represented on our home market, Germany, followed by the United Kingdom, Spain, the Netherlands and Poland. In offshore wind, innogy is currently number three in Europe by installed capacity. In onshore wind too, we are currently one of the largest operators in Europe. At the moment we are focussing on continuing to expand our activities in onshore and offshore wind power as well as reinforcing hydro-electric power generation. In addition, we are looking at entering new markets and technologies, such as large-scale photovoltaic plants, also possibly beyond our core European markets.

innogy offers sustainable and innovative energy solutions.
