the company profile of E.ON has to be updated: http://www.engineerlive.com/yourcareer/?title=E.ON&company=23
E.ON is an international privately-owned energy supplier which faces fundamental change: through implementing its new strategy, E.ON will in future be focussing entirely on renewables, energy networks and customer solutions, which are the building blocks of the new energy world. The conventional generation, global energy trading and exploration and production businesses segments are being transferred to a new company which will also be listed.
In the 2014 financial year, our staff comprising in excess of more than 58,000 employees based in many countries in Europe as well as in Russia and North America generated sales of around EUR 112 billion. In addition, there are businesses in Brazil and Turkey we manage jointly with partners. Within the renewables segment, we are one of the world's leading companies. Around 33 million customers purchase gas and electricity from E.ON. Our broad electricity generation portfolio comprises around 59 GW of generation capacity. The E.ON Group is run by Group Management in D?sseldorf.
E.ON has an ambitious objective: to make energy cleaner and better wherever we operate and in 2010 we began a process of transforming ourselves into a globalized, specialized provider of energy solutions.
Five global units manage our generation portfolio, renewables business, optimization and trading, new-build projects and innovative technology, and exploration and production business. Eleven regional units manage our retail operations, regional energy networks, and distributed-generation activities in Europe. We're also engaged in power generation and wholesale power marketing in Russia, a special-focus country. We created a new unit, E.ON International Energy, to expand our business outside Europe. It will leverage our expertise in conventional and renewable power generation to regions where energy demand is growing rapidly. Group-wide entities deliver support functions like IT and procurement.
