E.ON was the largest integrated German utility, but was split into two businesses, E.ON and unregulated Uniper. The E.ON business now comprises networks, mainly in Germany & Sweden, Customer Services, mainly in the UK & Germany, and Renewables (onshore and offshore wind, and solar). In its current form, at the end of 2017 E.ON operated some 6GW of renewable capacity of which just over 1GW was offshore. The Customer Solutions business had 21 mn customers & sold 134TWh of power & 141 TWh of gas. Non-core PreussenElektra had a net nuclear capacity of 3,808MW. E.ON has announced an agreement to acquire RWE's 77% stake in renewables, and network company innogy. As part of a complex transaction E.ON will transfer the renewable businesses to RWE and will become the largest European network company with a RAB of €37 bn, some 50 million customers and the nuclear business of PreussenElektra. Germany will remain the biggest single market a RAB of €20 bn and some 14 million customers. (12 Oct 2018)
