Uniper has three segments: ,European Generation‘, ‚Global Commodities‘ and ‚International Power‘.
European Generation: We own an attractive international portfolio of power plants, broadly diversified across countries, technologies and earning sources. European Generation operates about 26 gigawatts of generating capacity (mainly natural gas, hydro, and coal) in Germany, England, Sweden, France and the Benelux states. This segment also encompasses Uniper’s business of providing services in power-plant construction and operation as well as its stakes in nuclear power stations in Sweden.
Global Commodities: Uniper is ranked among the largest European traders of gas and electricity. The segment consists of Uniper’s global commoditytrading business and its midstream gas business. The gas business includes 400 terawatt-hours of long-term gas procurement contracts (which corresponds to half of Germany’s total annual consumption), about 8,2 billion cubic meters of gas storage capacity, and stakes in gas transmission pipelines.
International Power: This segment consists primarily of Uniper’s 11 gigawatts of generating capacity in Russia, which make it the country’s third-largest investor-owned power producer. In Russia we operate under the company name Unipro. Our power stations are located in key industrial regions: Central Russia, Ural and Western Siberia.
