Separation of E.ON business operations completed on January 1: Uniper launched on schedule
- E.ON now to focus on renewables, energy networks, and customer solutions
- Uniper to ensure supply security with conventional generation and energy trading
E.ON successfully separated its operations from Uniper’s effective January 1, 2016. From the new E.ON campus in Essen, the company will now focus on renewables, energy networks, and customer solutions. Uniper will operate independently from its headquarters in Düsseldorf. Uniper’s businesses—conventional power generation (hydro, natural gas, coal) and global energy trading—remain essential for ensuring the security of the energy supply. E.ON has therefore reached another important milestone in the execution of its new strategy. The spinoff of Uniper is expected to take place later in 2016 following the approval of E.ON shareholders.
