Axpo International S.A. was founded in 2004. As the Axpo Group's EU holding company, it acquires, manages, and in some cases finances the Group's direct and indirect shareholdings throughout Europe. Furthermore, Axpo International S.A. is responsible for the expansion of Axpo's assets in the use of renewable energies and handles higher-level, as well as administrative tasks, on behalf of the Group, and certain operating activities on behalf of other Axpo companies. Situated in the heart of Europe, Luxembourg is the ideal location to perform the described tasks, being home to many international corporations and important European institutions. The team of Roland Streit (Managing Director) would be glad to hear from you.
With more than 30 locations across Europe, North America and Asia, the Axpo Group is always close to its customers. And our proximity is more than geographic. We speak our customers’ languages, are immersed in their culture, and understand their specific market conditions. We have a significant presence in the European onshore wind and large-scale solar power business. Axpo is also one of the leading European energy traders along the entire time horizon, from intraday trading to multi-year contracts, with a broad range of products worldwide. Our renewable energy portfolio is one of the largest in the market, and we are the preferred European provider of tailored customer solutions.
Axpo has more than 5,000 MW of installed renewable energy capacity across Europe and markets a customer portfolio totalling 19,700 MW of energy from renewable sources.
