E.ON - Statistics & Facts

E.ON SE is an investor-owned electric utility service provider with its headquarters in Essen, Germany. E.ON was established in 2000 after the merger of United Electricity Mining Corporation (VEBA) and United Industrial Enterprises Corporation (VIAG). Since its beginnings, E.ON has gone onto acquire several companies including Powergen, Sydcraft, and LG&E Energy. Currently, E.ON is one of the largest electric utilities in the world.

E.ON operates in over 30 countries and serves over 30 million customers. The company is organized into three major segments, including customer solutions, energy networks, and renewables. About one third of all of the renewable energy capacity in Germany is connected to E.ON networks. The company’s wind energy business services have grown in recent years, with assets in the United Kingdom, Sweden, Germany, and the United States. E.ON has over 3,300 wind turbines located around the world and is considered the second-largest operator of offshore wind farms. E.ON’s international power plants are largely fueled by natural gas.

On January 1, 2016, E.ON separated its businesses into two main parts. Accordingly, a new company, Uniper, was formed to maintain the company’s conventional power generation and energy trading operations. The company also plans to restructure its nuclear operations under a new fully owned business, PreussenElektra. E.ON has retained its own retail and distribution services.
