Germany’s RWE has global plans for renewable energy business

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):The newly formed RWE AG will mainly invest the billions it plans to spend annually on renewables outside of its home market of Germany after its asset swap with rival E.ON SE and subsidiary Innogy SE is completed later this year, the company’s chief executive said.“You look where you earn the most money. At the moment, that is certainly not Germany,” Rolf Martin Schmitz, who has led the company since 2016, told an audience at the E-world power industry conference in Essen, Germany, on Feb. 4. “We will continue to invest globally.”Under a €40 billion asset swap announced last year, RWE is set to become the third-largest renewable energy generator in Europe and second-largest player in the offshore wind sector by taking over all the renewables assets of E.ON and Innogy. In its new incarnation, the company plans to spend €1.5 billion per year to grow its portfolio by between 2 GW and 3 GW of new wind and solar photovoltaic capacity.But Germany, where RWE operates the largest fleet of coal-fired power plants, won’t receive a majority of the planned investments, according to Schmitz. “There is just no space or market for it,” he said.Although solar PV additions totaled approximately 3 GW in Germany last year, the onshore wind sector has collapsed around the introduction of competitive auctions and a slowdown in approvals. The most recent tender in October 2018 saw prices tick up as interest from developers waned, although the government has also introduced special auctions for 8 GW of extra renewables capacity to be tendered between 2019 and 2021.More ($): RWE renewables focus will lie outside Germany after asset swap, CEO says Germany’s RWE has global plans for renewable energy businesslast_img read more

Mancini: United not 15 points better

first_img “The last 18 (unbeaten) – the last time they lost was Norwich. They deserve to stay on the top, but not 15 points. It is not a true table. Now we have eight games. If we play well, if we win a lot of these games, maybe we can reduce this gap. This should be our target in this moment.” City memorably thrashed United 6-1 when they visited Old Trafford last season. Mancini is certainly not expecting a repeat, saying: “This is impossible. This can happen every 100 years.” But he does expect his team to give everything, even though the title seems out of reach and they face Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals the following week. He said: “If it is not important for the table or the title race, I think the derby is always a derby. It is important for us and for them. We have pressure, always. It will be like the first (derby). I think every derby is important. We want to show we don’t deserve to stay 15 points behind and we can reduce the gap from now to the end. But the title race is finished.” Meanwhile, Mancini does not expect Carlos Tevez’s community service order to hamper the club in any way. The Argentinian striker was this week ordered to undertake 250 hours of unpaid community work after being found guilty of driving while disqualified. The punishment comes at a time when Tevez has been in fine form on the field having scored six goals in his last seven appearances. When asked if the community service was likely to cause a problem for City, Mancini said: “I don’t think so, no. I didn’t speak with him about this. I think that Carlos made a mistake and he will pay for this. But usually he has good behaviour.” Press Association Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini claims Manchester United’s sizeable lead in the Barclays Premier League exaggerates the difference between the two sides.center_img United hold a 15-point advantage over their rivals heading into Monday’s derby clash at Old Trafford. With just eight games remaining, Mancini has already conceded the title but the Italian is determined to cut the deficit to a figure he believes more accurately reflects the on-field gap. “We don’t deserve to stay 15 points behind. They have played very well, they have won a lot of games,” Mancini said. last_img read more
