Together with its partners, Axpo operates over 100 power plants. Our climate-friendly Swiss power mix comprises hydropower, biomass and nuclear energy with very low CO2 levels. As the largest producer of hydropower, and thanks to investments in biomass and fermentation plants, as well as hydroelectric plants, Axpo is by far the largest producer of renewable energies in Switzerland.
At international level, Axpo is increasingly focusing on wind energy and investing accordingly in locations that are technically and financially viable for this purpose. Our wind farm portfolio includes facilities in France, Spain, Italy and Northern Europe. Axpo also holds an interest in the Global Tech I offshore wind farm in the North Sea off the coast of Germany. In the summer of 2015, Axpo announced the acquisition of Volkswind GmbH. Axpo is now in a position to leverage its expertise in the planning, project planning and construction of wind farms.
