Nuclear energy plays a major role in electricity production at Axpo. Safety and reliability are of paramount importance at all times. The nuclear power plants are regularly upgraded with the latest technology; they must satisfy the most stringent safety regulations and be cost-efficient on a long-term basis.
Axpo owns just under 40 per cent of the installed production capacities in Swiss nuclear power plants.
Axpo's power plant operations include its own Beznau nuclear power plant, shareholdings in co-owned nuclear power plants in Gösgen and Leibstadt, and procurement rights to output from French nuclear power plants.
On average, nuclear energy accounts for around two-thirds of the total volume of energy sourced by Axpo every year. The nuclear power plants supply baseload energy, which is continuously available at constant output and is virtually CO2-free.
