A brief profile of the Energy Segment
The Energy Segment pools BayWa’s activities involving renewable energies and the trade in conventional energy sources. Under the umbrella of BayWa r.e. renewable energy GmbH, the Renewable Energies business unit covers the entire project business, from the planning, development and construction of wind farms and solar parks through to their sale. Services such as the technical and commercial management of plants and the marketing of the generated electricity on the energy market round off the range of offerings. BayWa r.e. also trades in photovoltaic components and storage technology for installers. Along with Europe and North America, BayWa r.e. is also active in the Asia-Pacific region and Australia. In its conventional energy business, BayWa primarily sells heating oils, fuels, lubricants, AdBlue and wood pellets, mainly in its core regions of southern Germany and Austria. A BayWa filling station card makes it even easier to refuel at any of the company’s own filling stations and at many other filling stations in Germany or electric vehicle charging stations.
