Is Axpo a renewable company?

Many people mainly think of nuclear power when talking about Axpo.
Although, today, the company is the largest producer of renewable energies in Switzerland. As at Beznau or Leibstadt, climate-friendly power is being produced at many locations throughout Switzerland. How well do you know Axpo? Test your knowledge with this photo series.

At the moment the political debate is focusing on the Energy Strategy 2050 and renewable energies. What’s happening at Axpo in this context?

Today we are setting the course for tomorrow’s electricity supply: As the largest producer of renewable energies in Switzerland, Axpo is making sustainable investments in the technologies of the future. Our focus is on hydropower, wind and biomass at ideal locations. On the way into the future, Axpo ensures a continuous, sustainable and climate-friendly energy supply for its customers in Switzerland through its reliable nuclear power plants.

Axpo is also active in the area of energy efficiency as called for by the Energy Strategy 2050. Axpo is converting its distribution networks from 50 to 110 kilovolts so that more electricity can be transported and electricity losses can be prevented during the distribution process (reduction of friction loss)  – in contrast to today. When the substations have been upgraded to the latest technology, energy losses will be about four times less.

See for yourself. 

Our assets in the area of power supply are located throughout Switzerland. This map will show you where Axpo is based.

So now you know where our production plants in Switzerland are located. But are you familiar with our power plant park? Can you recognise our dams or run-of-river power plants? Do you know which retention reservoirs we own and what they look like? This photo series will give you an opportunity to test your knowledge or learn something new. Enjoy!
