RWE launches separate portfolio for hydrogen


RWE has announced it is setting up a new hydrogen business unit within RWE Generation from 1 February 2021.

On 17 December, it outlined how it will be responsible for developing and implementing RWE’s hydrogen strategy, along with promoting the respective projects within RWE’s core markets. It will be headed up by Sopna Sury on RWE Generation’s Executive Board, who has been leading RWE Renewables Strategy and Regulatory Affairs division.

RWE feels it is “positioned extremely well” along the entire green hydrogen value chain, with RWE Renewables able to supply clean power for the production process as number two for offshore wind in the world, RWE Generation having the expertise to generate green hydrogen in electrolysers, RWE Gas Storage able to temporarily store hydrogen and the energy traders at RWE Supply & Trading able to make the fuel available for industrial customers as is required.
