Together with its partners, Axpo operates more than 100 power plants. Our climate-friendly Swiss electricity mix features reduced CO2 emissions and consists of hydropower, biomass, solar, wind and nuclear energy. We are not only the largest producer of hydropower but also the largest producer of renewable energy in Switzerland.

In Europe, Axpo focuses on solar and wind energy with investments in technically and economically suitable locations. Our wind farm portfolio includes plants in France, Spain, Italy and Northern Europe.
