The Group has its roots in supplying energy. EWE has been a reliable provider of electricity and heat for over 80 years. Energy has always been at the heart of its activities as the largest business area – in a market that is undergoing significant change. Climate protection and increasing competition represent new challenges for the networks, generation and the product range.
As a comprehensive provider, EWE covers every aspect of the value chain – from the production of electricity and heat to the distribution networks and sales. With its regional roots and being majority-owned by local councils, the Group is always aware of local needs and reacts with a correspondingly flexible, forward-looking energy mix, modern infrastructure, innovative offers and comprehensive services. Today, EWE provides more than 1.3 million customers with electricity and 1.7 million with gas.
