Axpo is the largest producer of renewable energies. We know our way around hydroelectric power, wind power, solar energy and biomass. Click here for the details.
The sun shines down from the sky at no cost – but not for 24 hours a day. Find out how electricity is generated from sunlight with photovoltaics and what Axpo is doing in this area here.
On the Muttsee dam wall of the PSW Limmern, Switzerland's largest alpine solar power plant is being built. The 2,2 MW system supplies 50% of the electricity in winter.
Hydrogen (H) is the most abundant element in the universe - it is a component of water (H2O) and practically all organic compounds.
In the future, battery storage will make a key contribution to ensuring security of supply in the transition to a CO2-free energy transition.
A pumped storage plant functions like a large battery. You can find out exactly how it works and what it has to with the security of electricity supply in Switzerland here.
Electricity comes out of the socket, of course! But how does it get there, what do Axpo’s networks have to do with it, and why do we use drones?
Axpo is active in Switzerland, and internationally as well. Read what we do in Europe and the USA - and why tailored customer solutions are key -here.
When the wind blows, the windmills turn. Find out how a wind turbine works and what’s need to produce wind energy in this background dossier.
Domestic, renewable and climate-friendly: Hydropower accounts for about 60 per cent of the energy produced in Switzerland. How it works and what it has to do with Axpo is explained here.
The Beznau nuclear power plant is Switzerland's first nuclear power plant. Read about how safe it is, who operates it and what these people think here.
Axpo has a leading role in the international PPA business. But what is a PPA, and why is demand growing so rapidly?
How electricity is produced by nuclear fission in nuclear power plants, which nuclear power plants belong to Axpo and how their safety is assessed.
Experience the world of electricity with a guided tour of the Beznau hydroelectric or nuclear power plant or the interim storage facility in Würenlingen.
