Generation Switzerland: Alpiq supplies Switzerland with electricity
Hydropower is the backbone of Switzerland’s energy generation and the roots of Alpiq. The specialist for hydropower has an attractive, highly flexible and environmentally friendly hydropower portfolio. A reliable base load from Switzerland’s two most modern nuclear power stations round off Alpiq’s profile. Using both these energy sources in parallel ensures Switzerland’s climate-friendly electricity supply. With its nuclear power stations, Alpiq generates some 20 percent of Swiss electricity. Around the clock.
With approximately 2.7 GW of installed capacity, Alpiq is one of Switzerland’s largest producers of hydropower. Alpiq’s plants are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and are continually optimised to ensure the efficient production of electricity.
