Energy dialogue - the political debate

Are you interested in topics such as energy policy, climate change, decarbonisation and security of supply? So are we! 

There are no black and white answers to all these questions. Only with fact-based measures can we achieve sustainable solutions. This is why Axpo seeks dialogue with representatives from all political camps - and presents this debate here on our website - in an open and transparent manner. 

Energy Voices Podcast

Mobility, digitalisation, infrastructure: the demand for electricity is increasing. Energy shapes our everyday life, nothing works without it. Switzerland is aiming for a CO2-neutral supply. How can we achieve this? Journalist Karin Frei welcomes guests from business, politics, research and society. She talks openly with them about climate policy, a secure energy supply and what this means for all of us. A podcast series hosted by Axpo with relevant and controversial voices about the future of energy.

This podcast is only available in German.

Climate election

Climate change was the dominant theme of National elections in October 2019, which is why Axpo dedicated a special website to this important debate last year. There you will find statements, promises and energy policy demands from many politicians from all parties: www.klimawahl.ch
