Our activities include marketing the electricity produced by Axpo, trading on international energy exchanges, and developing tailored solutions such as power purchase agreements (PPAs) for business customers.

Our analysts work closely with traders to develop short-, medium- and long-term trading strategies based on market news, data and models. Besides exceptional analytical skills, they have comprehensive knowledge of quantitative methods and are skilled at identifying emerging key trends.

With our IT systems and highly qualified IT experts, we gain valuable insights and findings from the enormous volumes of data that we receive each day.

Axpo’s skilled product developers create specific products and tailored solutions to meet the complex requirements of customers in the energy sector. This calls for strong analytical skills and a customer-centric approach. 

Our trading specialists combine strong analytical and management skills with a high level of risk awareness and resilience.

Energy production and distribution

Our production and distribution team is responsible for the safe and reliable operation of Axpo’s power plants and distribution networks. As evolving energy needs and technological advances drive the world’s transition to renewable energies, we empower and encourage our people to lead this shift with innovative approaches and technical expertise.

Ensuring that our power plants are safe, reliable and environmentally friendly is our top priority. This commitment can be seen across all our operations – whether large-scale hydropower, pumped storage, nuclear energy, gas, small-scale hydropower, wind energy, biomass or photovoltaics. The operations and maintenance teams that look after our electrical and technical systems make an active contribution to energy security. Our existing power plants and facilities are maintained by engineers experienced in the fields of renewables, hydropower and nuclear power. These engineers are also responsible for the planning and execution of new projects. With their extensive technical expertise and their entrepreneurial spirit, they are perfectly equipped to build a future characterised by innovation and progress.

Our network engineers are involved in the construction, operation and maintenance of distribution networks for Axpo and third-party companies. These tasks call for electrical engineering expertise, a systematic and results-oriented approach, and an understanding of the customers’ needs.

Our data scientists drive the digital transformation of our production facilities and networks. With large volumes of data to fuel data analytics and predictive maintenance, we can optimise our existing business streams and unlock new business areas. The future of efficient energy production and supply depends on data. Our highly qualified data scientists are leading the way by applying their knowledge and experience to create innovative solutions.
