Sourcing energy worldwide


Uniper trades a broad range of energy commodities throughout Europe, North America, and Asia. Our seasoned traders design strategies to optimize the value of our generation and gas assets, to manage risks, and to ensure that our customers have a reliable supply of increasingly clean energy. Digitalization is becoming integral to our trading activities, not only for interacting with counterparties but also as a tool for continually optimizing our portfolio with regard to market developments.

One of our most important commodities is gas. We have a deep understanding of the international markets in which we operate: interconnection capacities, gas flows, price differences between regions, the correlation between commodities, regulatory regimes, and the impact of weather and other factors on energy production and consumption. Although Europe’s gas needs will probably remain stable in the years ahead, its own production will decline. Against this background we are working on further diversifying our supply portfolio, for instance by sourcing more LNG. We have also resumed our plans for building an LNG terminal in Wilhelmshaven, Germany.

Decarbonizing our commodity portfolio is a huge challenge we signed up for to ensure that we can shape the future energy landscape. Hydrogen and hydrogen-based fuels are the energy carriers of the future. To reap hydrogen’s full advantages, however, Europe will need to meet much of its needs with imports. Uniper has been procuring gas worldwide — by pipeline and by ship — for decades. These activities provide a platform on which we can build a strong commercial position in the global hydrogen economy.


Our products and services

  • We offer our customers access to European markets as well as to our assets for producing, supplying, storing, and transporting natural gas.We source, transport, and market liquefied natural gas (LNG) worldwide. Through our subsidiary LIQVIS, we also build an infrastructure for the use of LNG in heavy transport.
  • We optimize the entire coal supply chain to meet quality, timing, and price requirements.
