An energy company for the future


We want to be sustainable

Our actions are determined by the harmony of ecological, social and economic objectives. We treat people and the environment with respect. Long-term profitability ensures freedom of action and competitiveness. 

We want to be innovative

The ongoing search for solutions to the energy needs of our customers shapes our thoughts and actions. To this end, we develop and implement products and services.

We want to be reliable

We are a Swiss energy company and stand for safety, quality and long-term orientation. We are therefore anchored locally and supported internationally. 


Our owners, the cantons of north-eastern Switzerland, established the Nordostschweizerische Kraftwerke NOK (‘Axpo’ since 2001) as a producer and grid operator in order to foster economic growth and the prosperity of the community. Today, Axpo is active in over 30 countries and 40 markets. It is Switzerland’s largest producer of renewable energy, as well as an international leader in energy trading and the marketing of solar and wind power.

Axpo pursues a clear growth strategy. Internationally, the company focuses on the development of renewable energy sources and its large customer and trading business. Within Switzerland, Axpo is building on its leading role in the transition to a carbon-free energy future. In addition to hydropower, wind and solar energy, Axpo also invests in battery storage systems and hydrogen. Axpo employs state-of-the-art technology to create custom energy solutions and new ideas for a life full of energy.
