Greentech Steag to become environmentally friendly energy provider
The goal is to develop Steag into an environmentally friendly energy provider. The plan is to greatly expand the Iqony division by investing in green technologies.
Our company supports the shift to environmentally friendly energy and heat,” says Jesús Olmos, chief executive of Asterion, according to a statement. Steag is well positioned to make an important contribution in Germany and Europe to the shift to clean, competitive and reliable energy sources such as solar and wind power.
Steag “in the green” – should focus on renewable energies
With a mix of different energy sources, including coal and especially gas, the energy supply can be secured during the transition period.
Steag was split into two divisions at the beginning of the year: a “black” division (hard coal-fired power generation, “Steag Power“) and a “green” division (sustainable growth business, “Iqony”).
