Uniper to expand focus on green energy as it posts ‘exceptional’ earnings


Germany-based international energy company Uniper has announced that it will transform into a greener company much faster than previously planned, following the release of its ‘exceptionally strong’ first-half earnings.

According to the company, the growth in flexible power generation, green gases, wind and solar will help Uniper accelerate the energy transition through more than €8bn of planned investments in green transformation through 2030.
