It’s the year 1914 when canton representatives sit down together to create a solid foundation for the electrification of Northeastern Switzerland. They cleverly join forces beyond canton borders and, over the next decade, realise large-scale power plants and transmission grids. Thanks to their farsightedness, the Northeastern Swiss cantons make sustainable development and prosperity possible for their citizens.
They are pioneers and the founders of Nordostschweizerischen Kraftwerke AG, today’s Axpo. But they are also entrepreneurs that take advantage of business opportunities for the benefit of their owners, the cantons. The power plants, as well as Axpo, are part of Switzerland’s national assets.
Electricity is the key energy of the future. In 2014, 100 years after its founding, Axpo is once again faced with great challenges. Axpo will meet these with courage, determination, and perseverance, and continue to advocate secure electricity supply.
