    Goals / remit

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 in 2016.
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.
