Axpo Energy Voices

Mobility, digitalisation, energy upgrading: Electricity demand is increasing. Energy increasingly shapes our daily lives. Switzerland is striving to reach CO2-neutral energy supply. How can we achieve this? Axpo is launching the first energy podcast and offers a platform for diverse viewpoints. Alena Weibel, Axpo Head Public Affairs & Media Relations, explains what the podcast series stands for.

Switzerland's energy future should be sustainable and CO2-free. In the upcoming months and years, making the right decisions will be crucial. Axpo is convinced that good solutions only come about in open dialogue. In order to highlight the diverse facets and their importance for all of us, we have initiated the first energy podcast in Switzerland. Prominent guests from business, politics, research and society have their say candidly and with no filters. The discussions are moderated by the journalist Karin Frei.
