Support our core business!
Since 2010, we have been controlling the E.ON power plant fleet through the global unit Generation both functionally and transnationally. Commercial, personal and energy functions as well as those related to generation are the focus there and they are uniformly managed in a virtual organization. Subjects related to regulation and approval are on the agenda there, as well as systematic human relations with external contacts in authorities, media, politics and society – the so-called stakeholder management.
