Reliable energy systems

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. We supply our customers with up to 3200 MW of capacity via a 2200-kilometre distribution network (110, 50 and 16 kilovolts).

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. Through our subsidiary Volkswind, we also contribute our expertise to the planning, project mapping and construction of wind farms. With our subsidiary Urbasolar, we are active in the entire solar energy value chain.
