Power Solution Group

The Power Solution Group consists of two divisions and two offices, namely the International Power Division, the Utility Retail Division, the Eneco* Office and the Domestic Power Business Office. We conduct a variety of initiatives including water businesses to meet diversifying utility needs, with a focus on our power solution value chain business which functions to “generate” renewable energy, “integrate” weather-dependent electricity (through a sophisticated balance of supply and demand), as well as “deliver” electricity and high added-value services to our customers.

Some of our main initiatives include our renewable energy business that contributes significantly to the decarbonization of society, the construction of distributed power generation infrastructure based on the concept of local production for local consumption, as well as power trading businesses such as spot transactions and futures trading in the power market.

By combining low-emission power sources, such as renewable energy, with digital technologies, we not only contribute to the stable supply of electricity, but also provide new added value to customers, such as supply and demand adjustment. We are also conducting initiatives in the field of hydrogen, which is expected to play a role as next-generation fuel.

Through these efforts, we aim to contribute to the realization of a sustainable low-carbon/ decarbonized society while raising our corporate value.
