North Rhine-Westphalia is an energy region with a tradition. Since industrialisation the provision and exploitation of energy have exercised a major influence on economic and social development here. North Rhine-Westphalia converts and consumes most energy in Germany and emits the largest quantity of CO2. Almost 30 per cent of Germany‘s electricity is generated in North Rhine-Westphalia. Germany‘s biggest energy supply utilities are also based here. Furthermore there are numerous research institutions in North Rhine-Westphalia concerned with the conversion and use of energy.
