The energy supply of the future needs new approaches – and the courage to take them.

EWE plays a pioneering role in the areas of climate protection and digital participation. To this end, the Group will invest over one billion euros in the expansion of the fibre-optic infrastructure in the coming years and four billion euros in the erection of new wind turbines.

EWE focuses on the interaction of renewable energies, smart grids and solutions for efficient, flexible energy use. For instance, EWE is a leader in the development of an integrated hydrogen economy.

EWE and its regions
EWE’s roots lie in northwest Germany, where the Group has developed into a specialist for energy and telecommunications supply.

Since 1990, EWE has also applied this expertise in Brandenburg, northern West Pomerania and Rügen, where it established a modern natural gas infrastructure. Today, EWE also provides electricity and telecommunications in Rügen, and supports the use of bioenergy.

Through its partnership with swb, Bremen and Bremerhaven have been EWE Group business regions since 2009. EWE has been active in energy trading and natural gas supply in Poland since 1999.
