Digitization of the network infrastructure

We are Axpo Grid, a specialised subsidiary of Axpo. We operate the high-voltage grid in northern and eastern Switzerland. In order to ensure a high level of supply security now and in the future, we have developed and implemented  digital solutions in recent years as part of our Grid 4.0 digitalisation and innovation programme. Intelligent technologies help to cope with the increasing complexity of the energy supply, create transparency in data analysis and simplify day-to-day work. We advance the digitalization of grid infrastructure together with our customers.
