NRG Energy, Inc., a competitive energy provider, has a diversified generation portfolio, distinguished by its range in geography, fuel source and dispatch level. NRG’s global portfolio of projects totals over 24,000 net MW.

Founded in 1989, NRG is a wholesale power generation company, primarily engaged in the ownership and operation of power generation facilities and the sale of energy, capacity and related products in the United States and internationally.

We have a diverse portfolio of electric generation facilities in terms of geography, fuel type and dispatch levels, which helps us mitigate risk. Operations include competitive energy production and cogeneration facilities, power marketing, district heating and cooling production, thermal energy production and resource recovery facilities.

NRG’s portfolio of projects is primarily in North America but also in Europe and Australia. Our projects use a wide array of fuel sources including fossil fuels (natural gas, oil, coal and nuclear) and refuse-derived fuels. NRG also has a diverse portfolio in terms of dispatch type. We have a variety of baseload, intermediate and peaking units to create a balanced portfolio. NRG’s baseload units run most often and provide power to meet day-to-day needs, while our intermediate and peaking units are dispatched during periods of higher demand.
