RWE represents change, innovation and sustainability. As one of the world’s leading generators of electricity from renewable energy sources, we aim to be carbon-neutral by 2040 and to enable a sustainable life for people around the world. To achieve this, we are looking for dynamic and motivated people to join us in creating a sustainable and secure energy future.


With its highly efficient power plants in Germany, the UK and the Netherlands, the approx. 3,000 employees of RWE Generation produce power from gas, hydro and biomass. RWE Generation is the number two company in the European gas sector – an excellent starting point. After all, gas is becoming more and more important as the bridge between the old energy world and the new age of renewables. In the Netherlands in particular, we are focusing on biomass by converting two hard-coal power plants to this carbon-neutral energy source. We are also represented in many core markets with hydropower plants. Moreover, RWE Generation is the hub for the Group’s hydrogen activities.
