Morningstar Quantitative ratings for equities (denoted on this page by) are generated using an algorithm that compares companies that are not under analyst coverage to peer companies that do receive analyst-driven ratings. Companies withratings are not formally covered by a Morningstar analyst, but are statistically matched to analyst-rated companies, allowing our models to calculate a quantitative moat, fair value, and uncertainty rating.

After the deal with E.On, pro forma RWE is refocused on power generation, mostly in Europe. It owns 46 gigawatts of power generation capacity: 37% from lignite and hard coal plants, 31% from gas plants, 21% from renewables, 6% from nuclear (which will be shut down by 2022), and 5% from other sources. Besides Germany, RWE’s power plants are chiefly located in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Turkey, and the United States for many onshore wind farms.
